Please help resolve the pending adoptions from Democratic Republic of Congo

117,378 Letters Sent So Far

I am a constituent and voter living in your congressional district. I am writing today to ask for your help in solving a problem I care deeply about.

Hundreds of children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) that were in the process of being adopted by American families are now stuck without any resolution in sight. Many of these children have been legally adopted by US families through the DRC courts and have US visas issued by the US Embassy in Kinshasa. Yet the DRC has suspended the issuance of exit letters, an immigration document required for these children to leave the country. As a result, there is no way for the adoptive parents to be united with their children short of relocating to DRC indefinitely.

These children are stuck because DRC declared a moratorium on exit letters for all adoptions that had not been approved by September 25, 2013. Yet even for families whose cases were approved by that date, exit letters have been withheld.

I wish I could tell you exactly how many families are directly impacted by this problem. I cannot because even six months into this crisis, the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have not even bothered to cross-reference their lists of families in the process of adoption to create a complete listing of the pipeline families that are now stuck. Even more disappointingly, there has been little diplomatic effort with the DRC government to resolve this issue.

Every day that passes, these waiting children are being damaged. They need a solution now!

I believe you can help solve this crisis. Could you:
Ask Secretary of State Kerry to take a personal interest in resolving this situation. Please express to the Secretary how important innocent childrens lives are to you and ask for his help in resolving this situation immediately;
Send a letter asking President Joseph Kabila and the Prime Minister Augustin Matata Ponyo of the DRC to intercede so that these children can be united with their adoptive parents immediately; and
Speak publicly about your support for these American families and their children.

I know you ran for office out of a desire to make a true difference in peoples lives. I hope you will take this opportunity to do just that. The lives of hundreds of innocent orphan children are depending upon you. If you desire additional information, please contact Kelly Ensslin at Both Ends Burning (www.bothendsburning.org), a nonprofit advocacy organization assisting the families stuck in this process.

I look forward to your help.

WAKE UP AMERICA & "ALL" MEDIA !!

If the American public would just 'LISTEN' to the audio interview that Mark Levin had with Dr. Paul Kengor - They would realize who Barack Obama 'REALLY IS' and who he had as a mentor (Frank Marshall Davis) when he was in Hawaii between the ages of 12 & 18.
"EXTREMELY INTERESTING."
Dr. Kengor wrote a book entitled " The Communist Frank Marshall Davis - The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor". Dr. Kengor has added MANY references for proof of the information in his book.. You can get the book from Amazon, Not from Barnes & Noble.
( I wonder WHY NOT ?? )
Frank Marshall Davis was a card carrying Communist. There are also people who believe that Frank Marshall Davis IS BARACK'S REAL FATHER... Frank also knew Eric Holder and Valerie Jerrit (Sp ?) . She was born in Iran.
Listen to the interview and you'll SEE WHY Barack IS DESTROYING OUR GREAT AMERICA AND PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD..
WE NEED TO GET RID OF ALL PEOPLE INTENTIONALLY TRYING TO DESTROY OUR GREAT COUNTRY AND THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY SUCCEEDING !!!

Barack wrote a book entitled "Dreams From My Father" and referred to Frank 22 times. He put out an audio version and DID NOT REFER TO FRANK EVEN ONCE. WHY ??
WAKE UP AMERICA AND GET THAT BEAST OUT OF "OUR" WHITE HOUSE !!!

On behalf of the waiting children separated by continents from those who have already adopted them and love them, please do anything and everything to bring them home.
