Tourist Visa Application Approved Even With Limited Docuents Submitted

I assisted a client in applying for temporary resident visa to visit her son in Canada. It's a tough case and I told my client not to expect too much. She said it is still worth a try. And so we did.

She doesn't have formal employment for the last 20 years and doesnt have much cash in bank. Her son just landed in Canada early 2007 with his wife and 3 kids. Her son's wife gave birth on 2nd week of December. The reason why my client wants to visit Canada is actually to take care of her son's wife and kids.
Temporary Resident Visa
The theme of the invitation letter and the cover letter we sent to visa officer focus on humanitarian and compassionate consideration. Being honest really makes a difference. She received her visa today!
