Adoption Agency: Citizenship Application and Kimberlee Moran

adoption agency: The Abbotsford, B.C. mother said they used a reputable adoption agency and ensured all of their documents were in order before they submitted the second portion of his citizenship application, according to CTV. We spent seven weeks there completing his adoption and bonding with him and completing all the necessary paperwork that we would need in order to bring him back to Canada, Kimberlee explained in a video posted on Facebook on Thursday. In early August, Kimberlee Moran and her husband travelled to Ibadan, Nigeria to adopt their two-year-old son Ayo. Because there isn't a Canadian immigration office in Nigeria, the couple travelled to Accra, Ghana to drop off Ayo's citizenship application. It's as simple as them Canadian immigration officials opening an envelope, checking to make sure the adoption was completed properly and ethically, and then giving a visa so we could return back to Canada while we await his Ayo's citizenship certificate, she said. Kimberlee said they expected it to be a fairly simple process and they heard from other adoptive families this final step would take up to a week to process. ( As reported in the news.
