My mom, who lives in South Africa, is the strongest person I know. She's been through more ups and downs than I can count. She has always been there for me, despite struggling and beating cancer (twice!) amongst other things. Now, at 29 years of age, the roles have been reversed and it's my turn to be there for her :-)

Mom lost her job about a year ago and has not been able to find a permanent job since. In order to pay her rent and other bills, she's been pet and house-sitting but never earns quite enough from that to make end's meet.

To make a long story short, we're trying to raise enough money to sponsor my mom to come and live with us in the United States. To do that, we need money for filing the USCIS forms (just over $400) as well as the cost of the plane tickets (between $3000 and $4000). In addition to that, there is some debt that needs to be cleared ($3000) before she'll be able to leave the country and we just aren't able to afford it all ourselves.

We're asking our family and friends to donate any amount (big or little - every bit counts!) in lieu of birthday/Christmas gifts, etc so we can bring my Momma home!
