Dear Sirs:

This is my official request to remain in Guyana. I am presently responsible for the care of my 15-year-old daughter and an adopted son, who is 18 years old. My daughter [name deleted] [Dianne Scheid] fully agrees with this decision. My son, [name deleted] is [several words deleted], but has improved greatly in the 15 months that he has been in my care. (Though the adoption is not a “legal” adoption, he is of age now, and I have many witnesses to his improved motor skills and speech in this short time that he has lived with my children and myself.

I have skills that would surely qualify me for employment here, and I am familiar enough with Georgetown that settling in here would be no problem.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Our attorney has also been notified about this plan.

Very sincerely,
[MaryAnne Casanova]
