We have been working a year to get Sam adopted. My wife and all my kids came to China to bring Sam home. He was legally adopted on March 19, 2013. He is our Son and no longer a Chinese citizen. During the exam for a travel visa to come home, it was discovered Sam has a shadow on his lung indicating he has tuberculosis. Sam is not an American citizen yet. I know this sounds odd. The adoption is recognized by both China and the US, but his citizenship is not. Sam is required to undergo a test that takes 6 to 8 weeks to complete. He can NOT travel until this test is complete. Even then, we will need to get a waiver. In the meantime, we can not leave him here in China and return to the States. We can not send him back to the very place we rescued him from. We can not abandon him. How can we? So, I have decided to stay in China with him until we can get the waiver. This will cost money we don't have. We have exhausted all available funds. After 3 weeks, I will no longer be receiving a paycheck from work. I won't lose my job, but I won't be getting paid. Please help us stay afloat while I remain in China and take care of Sam. My wife Lisa needs to get my two girls home. This is a difficult decision for us. We pray God will hurry. I know all things are according to His will and His timing and we praise Him for getting Sam to us. He made us a promise and has fulfilled it. Now he needs to get us home. I know He will, and I pray He uses you to help. God Bless You. If you don't believe in God or Jesus, we can talk about that later, but go ahead and click the button and give us a hand. We are grateful.
Thank You,
Allie and Lisa Lansford and Family
