Yesterday we got the news that a fellow [Home Country] family has received some devastating news. The G family has been in the process for so long and was so close to bringing their daughter, Zia, home before the Embassy instituted their new 3-6 month investigation policy. Now they are facing a much longer wait before their process can be finished. This is tough enough to deal with but in the past few days the G’s have also learned that Zia is in major medical danger. They have been able to have her seen by doctors and specialists in [Capital City] and the results of these visits have confirmed that this young girl needs medical attention now. If they could, the G’s would bring her home immediately so that she could receive the care she needs here in the states. Unfortunately, the Embassy still has not issued her visa and there is no way, right now, to make that happen. So the G’s are doing the next best thing. Momma G is on her way to [Capital City] to be with her girl and advocate for her medical care and try her best to get Zia an expedited visa due to her emergency medical situation. Momma G has no idea how long she will be there or what will happen with Zia once she gets there. She is stepping out in extreme faith and love and she needs our help. Firstly, she needs our prayers! I can’t imagine heading to [Capital City] without knowing what was going to happen and when I was going to come home. Then pile all the heartache of having an extremely sick child on top of that stress. And then there’s the ridiculous amount of financial stress that this will bring to the G family. Everything is expensive in [Capital City], especially adequate medical care which the G’s will have to pay for out of pocket. This is the other area where we can definitely help! Another adoptive family, the P’s, have stepped in and set up a donation page for this sweet family. Please, if you can, help them out! Help this sweet girl! She needs to come home immediately and get the help she needs from her family and from doctors who can make a difference. You can visit the page “For Miss Zia” here to read more and donate. Please do. And please pray for Momma G as she travels and for her husband and daughter who will stay behind. And pray that the Embassy will issue Zia a medically expedited visa so that she can get the care that she needs. I know y’all are awesome and I know your hearts are so big. Let’s all show the G’s that they are not alone!
Friday night update: Zia’s health declined so much today that the doctors had to perform emergency surgery – expensive emergency surgery! Zia is stable right now but in ICU. Please pray for this sweet girl and donate if you can!
