Jennifer (name changed), a newlywed from Africa, was trafficked into the Mediterranean and was very far away from home. She missed her husband and wished to be back with him, especially when she found out that she was expecting a baby.
Since Jennifer’s baby was born in that country, the law would not allow her to bring her baby back to Africa when she was released from prison. They also wanted proof that her husband was the father of the baby or else she would also be charged with having a baby out of wedlock, which is illegal in that country.
There were many laws working against Jennifer, and she was worried about her baby being away from her in an orphanage.
We are excited to report that the tests and documents were cleared! Jennifer is now home with her baby and husband. We are inspired by Jennifer’s strength and determination to unite her family again.
