Please help Angie bring Ava home safely
Feb 12, 2018

Angie & Ava are home!

After an unexpected delay, Angie is home with Ava! Angie's abusive husband hid Ava's American passport. Angie thinks he suspected she might be trying to leave. She kept things as calm as she could for several weeks, checking their important document folder every few days. One day last week Ava's passport was back in the folder.

We quickly got Angie & Ava to the airport and back home. Ava loves living with her grandparents and they could not be happier. We are now working with Angie to get her into counseling and connected with an attorney.

We can't thank you enough for helping Angie bring Ava home!
