A B.C. woman has been hospitalized in Africa while she waits for her adopted son’s citizenship paperwork to be approved by the Canadian government in a process she expected to take no more than a week, but has left them in limbo for months.
In early August, Kimberlee and Clark Moran travelled to Ibadan, Nigeria to adopt their two-year-old son Ayo. The Abbotsford, B.C. couple spent weeks finalizing their son’s citizenship documents and then travelled to Accra, Ghana in September to drop off the necessary paperwork at the Canadian immigration office there.
