The last time we were all together September 14, 2016
The money needed to get Dylan to Canada is to help us cover the costs of getting Dylan's mom Sisilia back to Bali to take him for his DNA test as soon as possible, and of course for Dylan to be with his mom as he has been without her for almost 10 months as we await his citizenship. After Dylan's DNA results confirm I'm his father (NO doubt in my mind) we will receive his citizenship, at which time I will have to go to Bali and take Dylan to the Canadian Consulate to get his Canadian Passport and then home to Canada. The Canadian government requires me as the parent with Canadian Citizenship accompany him personally for the passport application, which takes 2 to 3 weeks to process. So this requires me to be in Bali for at least 4 weeks if all goes well. Unfortunately, I recently started a new job and only have 1-week vacation earned thus far, which requires me to take at least 3 weeks of unpaid leave. So the money being raised is to cover 3 travel tickets, DNA test, and expenses during my unpaid leave in which I will have no salary.
Almost every day I feel I have failed my son, Dylan has become very expressive and emotional, saying we have forgotten him, and his dream is broken. Dylan asks me almost every day "Do you have my passport yet"......."When is Mommy coming home, Daddy you promised!" and "You guys hate me!" are just a few of his comments.
Sometimes desperate times requires desperate measures, this is why we are reaching out for help to bring our family together again. Our goal is to have Dylan in Canada before September so we can enroll him in school. Dylan has spent the past Christmas and his 7th birthday alone and without his family. We can't begin to explain how difficult it has been.

More information on what has transpired in our immigration process:
I originally applied for Dylan, his Mother (Sisilia) and brother (Quelen) to come to Canada as Permanent Residents (PR). The Canadian Government told me I had to apply for Dylan as a Citizen as he was entitled to Citizenship and he was removed from the PR, so I applied for Dylan's Citizenship. Dylan's Mother & Brother received their PR and had to enter Canada before the end of September 2016 or loose their PR. Unfortunately, by September Dylan did not receive his citizenship and I had to bring Sisilia & Quelen to Canada to prevent them from losing their PR. However, this meant we had to leave Dylan with our neighbor to look after Dylan in our rented house as we have no family there. My intentions were to send Sisilia back once in Canada, however, with the unforeseen cutbacks at work upon our return to Canada I haven't been able to and I have been struggling just to care for us all.

We would like to express our thanks in advance, we are most appreciative of any help received.
