'My family has arrived on Sunday safely. It was very emotional to see my mother after about 10 years and little brother for the first time! I have no words to describe this feeling right now. I just want to thank to the company (Paragon Law) for helping, working and sacrificing for me to reunite with my lovely family. And all to those lawyers who gave everything to make this happen. Right now, I will leave with my huge appreciation but one day soon I will find a words to thank you for your amazing work.
