We need your help reuniting our family. 
I've been separated from my wife and 5 kids now for 6.5 months. 
I'm asking you to take a few minutes to send a few emails to hopefully help us to be together again. 

For those of you who don't know, nearly 9 months ago our family traveled to Nigeria and adopted a sweet little boy. On January 3rd we applied for his visa to the USA. We should have been able to get him an immigrant visa to the USA in a month or less. Here we are nearly 7 months later and there is still no progress on our case. The US Consulate in Lagos refuses to communicate with us on the status of the case and when it may be processed. I've been away from home this entire time, and haven't seen my 5 other children for 6.5 months. It feels like my own US government is holding me and my adopted son hostage abroad.

THIS IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We are asking that you would take a few minutes and email both the US Department of State authorities who oversee international adoption immigration. We also ask for you to email your senators and congressman to ask for their support to pressure the Department of State and the US Consulate in Lagos, Nigeria to stop delaying without explanation and actually process our case.

Below is a general template you can use as a skeleton and then add your own personal thoughts. Feel free to adapt or edit to make it more personal. If you are asked for more information please private message me and I can send you a full case history to pass along. Thank you so much for your help!!! May God bless you.

Here's the template for an email or letter to send:

(Date)
Dear (insert person's name),

I am writing to ask you please provide whatever assistance and efforts are needed to allow my friend Lukas Stasi to return home to America with his legally adopted son. Lukas and his wife Brittney Stasi completed the adoption of a little boy named Victor from Lagos, Nigeria on December 12th, 2018. On January 3rd, 2019 they applied for an immigrant visa for their son under case number LGS2017853006. The application was placed at the US Consulate in Lagos, Nigeria.

Prior to their arrival in Nigeria, all of the other US families that had adopted from their agency received visas in 4 weeks or less. The Stasi's applied 7 months ago. The Consulate will not provide any details to the progress of their case and is offering no explanation when the case will be processed. Brittney had to return to America with their 5 other children in January. Lukas continues to wait in Africa with their adopted son. He has not seen his 5 other children now for over 6.5 months. These poor kids are now growing up without their father. This continued separation is causing tremendous emotional and financial strain on their family. Their hearts are big, and they have exhausted all of their finances to adopt this sweet boy. That is why we are reaching out to you. Would you please help?

(now write 1-3 more paragraphs from your personal opinion and perspective as to why this is such a frustration and outrage and needs a solution )

I kindly request you to pressure the US Consulate in Lagos to finalize the administrative process immediately and approve a visa for the Stasi's legally adopted son. Please let this family be reunited again.

Kindest Regards,

(Your name)
