DuPage Immigration Lawyer Helps Five-Year-Old Bolivian Girl Receive Visa to Join Aurora Family

After years of waiting, Corey and Beatriz Wieseman of Aurora, IL were finally able to bring their adoptive Bolivian daughter home to the United States with the help of DuPage Immigration Lawyer Bradley C. Giglio of Mevorah Law Offices LLC.

FEBRUARY 03, 2015

Mevorah Law Offices LLC is pleased to announce that Corey and Beatriz Wieseman of Aurora, IL were finally able to bring their adopted Bolivian daughter Cecilia home. Humanitarian Parole has been approved for five-year-old Cecilia and she received her immigration visa on January 27, 2015.

Attorney Bradley C. Giglio of Mevorah Law Offices LLC joined the Wieseman family to greet Cecilia at O’Hare airport this past Saturday, January 31, to watch her step onto U.S. soil and be with her parents and three brothers.

"We never gave up. It was never an option to fail. We were going to find a way to bring Cecilia to the U.S. to get the help she desperately needs. And that is what we did. Cecilia is now with her family," says Giglio.

The Wieseman family first met Cecilia back in December of 2011 when she was just 2 years old. The family was visiting Santa Cruz, Bolivia where they volunteered at a local orphanage for children with severe disabilities.

Cecilia was abandoned at birth and diagnosed with HIV. She was hospitalized for one month and 18 days and then placed in an orphanage. This orphanage learned she had HIV and abandoned her after one night. Because of her HIV, no orphanage would take her except one that cared for severely disabled children. Cecilia was ostracized from the general population of kids and would not even be allowed to go to school and get an education because she has HIV. Cecilia was suffering physically, and was a small girl, fragile and slim, with her condition likely due to the prenatal deficiencies from poor living conditions as well as her condition of having HIV. Cecilia was not getting the medical care she desperately needed. Children older than 15 years living with HIV “can’t be found in Bolivia” and Cecilia’s access to medication was “about to end,” according to REDBOL, which is a the Red Nacional de Personas que Viven con VIH y Sida en Bolivia is a community-based organization and network of people living with HIV and AIDS.

Corey and Beatriz fell in love with Cecilia and had to put an end to her suffering and get her the help she needs. The Wieseman family adopted Cecilia and tried to get her the help she needs in the U.S. but their request was denied. After the U.S. refused to let Cecilia enter the country the Aurora couple enlisted the help of DuPage immigration attorney Bradley C. Giglio of Mevorah Law Offices LLC. They came to Giglio to obtain Cecilia’s visa so they could get her the necessary medical treatment and bring her home.

Giglio worked tirelessly to bring Cecilia to the U.S., engaging the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Humanitarian Affairs Branch of USCIS, the U.S. Department of State, and the support of Senators and Representatives to aid his clients’ efforts. The family faced many challenges during the lengthy process including Corey’s daily struggles due to his paralysis and Beatriz resigning from her teaching position in order to travel to Bolivia to care for Cecilia. The Wieseman family is thrilled to finally bring Cecilia home so she can be with her mother and father and three brothers.

"We never gave up. It was never an option to fail. We were going to find a way to bring Cecilia to the U.S. to get the help she desperately needs. And that is what we did. Cecilia is now with her family and we at Mevorah Law Offices are proud to have been able to bring this family together and help Cecilia get the treatment that will save her life," says Giglio.

During their wait to bring Cecilia to the United States the family has found support on their Facebook Page: Bring Cecilia Home.
