Braley helped end international bureaucratic nightmare for new parents of Nigerian adoptee


Washington, DC – On Monday in Des Moines, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will meet one of Iowa’s newest residents and present him with an American flag flown over the US Capitol.

Joseph Craig is the Nigerian-born adopted son of Jonathan and Kayla Craig of Des Moines.  In July, the Craigs learned the adoption of their son was on the verge of being blocked by diplomatic red tape and bureaucratic bungling by US and Nigerian authorities.  Scott Porter, Kayla’s father and a Waterloo resident, turned to Braley for help navigating every parent’s worst nightmare – and on August 27th, Joseph arrived in Des Moines.
