OUR STORY

It was a state of bewilderment when the ultrasound confirmed that I was going to have twin girls. “You are going to have twin girls” said the Doctor.  “What! But no one had had twins in my family and in my husband’s family as that then”, I retorted. We were just baffled at the grace and faithfulness of God. Numbers 23:19 says “God is not a man that He should repent, has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken and He will not make it good”?
 
On that fateful day, being 29th September, 2004, the un-identical twins, Goodness and Mercy arrived, just 4 minutes apart. Goodness was always the happy and cheerful one while Mercy was always the crying type.
 
My husband got a Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship and travelled to Canada for his master degree program in May, 2005. Having been denied a family visiting visa which would have saw our family travelled together to Canada, my husband had to travel alone, leaving me and the 3 kids behind.  “If you are applying from Nigeria, the chances of you getting a visitor’s visa are very low”, says Cohen, a Canadian immigration lawyer.
