  1. Nor did I say any one from here suggested it. That was just my own comment. Ill continue the support from abroad route and hope for the best. The school route while interesting, sounds bound to fail. It would also be impossible for me with my job to live abroad for 2 years.
  2. But the loud man on the TV said its way too easy, and that people can basically bring over a whole village. Thank you all for the replies. I had no idea this would be this crazy and or impossible. Its insane to me that one of the few options in a situation like this is to wait for the person to age out and then meet an American, fall in love, and get married.
  3. How does a person adopt a child from outside of the US while somehow getting around that living with them abroad for 2 years part? I figured this would take years and not be cheap, but I didnt think it would be impossible.
  4. Hello all! I am about to try another visa journey for my niece, and was wondering if I could explain our situation and get some advice on a best plan or course of action to take. Backstory: Both my wife and our daughter immigrated to the US after we were married. My wife took her Citizenship test and is now a USC. My wife’s niece currently lives in Thailand and is 13 years old. The parents of our niece were never married. The father is out of the picture, and has been so since right after the child’s birth. The mother of the niece, which was my wife’s sister passed away a few years back. The child now lives with my wife’s mother and father (her grandparents) and attends boarding school. I can provide for the child and I think her opportunities will be much greater in the US vs staying in Thailand. Her grandparents are also getting older which limits the amount of support she will have there if she were to stay. So now I’m trying to find out the easiest way to get her here. I know based on my previous visa adventures, it will be an uphill battle, but I’m willing to put forth the effort and give her a shot at a better life. I didn’t know if it would be better trying to petition for our niece now that she is a USC in the same manner she would do a petition for a parent? And if so, is it better to have my wife do it, while her current job is just for fun/to keep her busy vs having me do it with my full income and support? Or would it be better to try to adopt her in Thailand seeing as she truly does not currently have parents, and then once that is done, try to petition for her to come over? Or option 3, just try to do the adoption thing in total from America? Any advice or further clarification would be greatly appreciated. I’m not really sure where to begin. Thank you for your time!
