A couple from Canada who lost the love of their lives to cancer, and the dog who they named their son, may be in the United States in the near future.
Karen & Paula were in the hospital and were receiving treatment for cancer when they met in 2015.
They said their relationship was on the rocks and decided to find a new home.
“I wanted to go to the United Kingdom, and I was told that there was nothing for us,” Karen said.
“But when we were getting the cancer diagnosis and I said, ‘I don’t want to go anywhere else,’ they said, they said we are staying in Canada.
I didn’t understand at the time.”
She said her husband, a Canadian citizen, said he would help her find a permanent home.
But when she was still in the ICU, the couple were told that the Canadian Embassy would not take them back.
“We have no legal protection whatsoever, and they said no,” Karen told CBC News.
“So we had no choice but to go back to the hospital.”‘
I don`t want to see him’The couple says they are still waiting for an answer from the Canadian government.
They are currently in the process of getting a Canadian passport to get their name on the Canada Post application to re-home.
“It`s been a long time, but we`re finally getting an answer,” Karen says.
“The whole time we`ve been waiting, we’ve had to make a lot of excuses.
We don`ts know what to say.
I don`te know what the best thing to do is.”
They are hoping to rejoin their children at a nearby school, where the children are learning to read and write.
