The day Stacie Turner "has dreamed of" is finally here -- she's en route to Nigeria to connect with her biological father.
This past season on The Real Housewives of D.C., we saw the beginning Stacie's difficult quest to find her biological dad. And now, after much hard work, the father and daughter are just hours away from meeting in person.
"En route to JFK airport to head to Nigeria to meet my family! I have dreamed of this day for so long and its finally here!" she tweeted earlier today.
Stacie has been live-tweeting the whole event, posting photos of her travel partners, including husband Jason, on the way to Africa. "ARIK airlines is the bomb," she gushed. "Full lounge on the plane, nigerian food, nice staff- first class all the way baby!"
The last we heard from Stacie, she's landed in Lagos and is heading to Victoria Island -- be sure to follow the rest of her trip on Twitter.
I am just so happy for her - she is one of the few genuine ladies of all of these programs and one of the few that I feel I can believe, no matter what she says. She is also quite beautiful and deserves all of the happiness that her Dad can bring to her and her family -
So you are Igbo? Stacie Nno ooh. Welcome to Nigeria and thank God you found your father. I'm sure the old man was not prepared for this and he was probably surprised when you visited him. This would probably be the best gift you gave yourself, your family and your Nigerian father
I have been anxious to know what happened next with you and your father in Nigeria. Are you applying for your Nigerian passport anytime soon? I am also sure you must have heard of your fellow igbos Dr Mrs Iweala Okonjo and Oby, Managing Director and vice president respectively of World Bank, They would be glad to welcome you into their igbo sisterhood. Have you heard of renowned Chinua Achebe? His famous novel Things fall apart is a good introduction to traditional igbo culture..when i think of the fact that your birth mother do not want to relate with you, I am so excited for you about your Nigerian family that i want to burst. I come from a large family in Nigeria and i can't imagine anybody not having one.
