We are from the Caribbean. She gave up her custody to my uncle (a U.S. citizen) after my father passed when I was a child so that I could become a U.S. citizen (I don't think she fully understood the legal severity of this). Despite giving up custody to my uncle, my mother moved to the U.S and was able to find a job and raise me. My uncle did not play that much of a role other than the fact that he helped give me citizenship. It's really hard for me to settle with the fact that she is my mother, raised me like a mother but "legally" she is not. Now that I am an adult, are there any steps that I can take to help her regain the custody she gave up so that I can sponsor her? We both have never gotten into any trouble with the law.
