I'm optimistic about the appeal after today.
We had a Minister of Parliament visit us today giving advice about how to prepare the appeal. I drafted out an appeal during the week and went into detail about the Bill of Rights Act, Humanitarian Act and NZ's Immigration Act. I wasted my time.

He detailed us on the Immigration Protection Tribunal and I don't know why I didn't see it before, but the tribunal if for Immigration PROTECTION, an independent board. He said they take very seriously the grounds of compassionate reasons especially with families. There's our 'argument'.

He said it's all in the layout of the appeal and what you say. He offered to look over our appeal and make changes where needs be. He also said he'd run it by a fellow political speech writer/editor also. I think he'll be surprised that despite my boondock upbringing, I'm literate.

A good day.
It's the hope we needed.
