I travelled alone to Nairobi to adopt Asher in September 2003. I was amazed how many Africans are hoping to immigrate into USA or Canada. They have it very tough and see us as so prosperous and we really are, we just don't know it. I sat all day with everybody in line waiting to present forms at the Embassy and observed how desperate people are to leave. I am sure this is not all encompassing as I am sure many are happy. One example was a grandparent couple with two grandchildren. I heard that the children wold be allowed but not the grandparents (it is possible that the parents were already in US) I met very kind and friendly friends there and will always remember.
