A woman was finally able to fulfill her dream of surprising her sisters in New York after multiple visa rejections in a trip more than 20 years in the making. Adriana Rodriguez, 25, was just three years old when her eldest sister, Diana, 37, left their native Colombia and moved to New York to live with her aunt and cousins. In the years that followed, Adriana's other sister, Laura, 33, traveled to the U.S. as an international student, before obtaining a visa to reunite with Diana and live in America, too. Adriana was just 12 at the time Laura moved, and, at that time, Diana had only visited home once – a period Adriana described as some of the happiest in her life. From that moment, Adriana was determined to one day spend time with her sisters in New York, but in 2017, 2018 and 2019 three of her tourist visa applications were denied.
