Alicia called us from Bahrain late last year. Her husband had become more and more violent when Alicia was pregnant with Ogden. He didn't allow Alicia to give birth to Ogden in the USA as he had previously promised. Right after Ogden was born, Alicia's husband beat her. She was so afraid and didn't know what to do.
When Alicia asked him to go with her to get Ogden's American Certificate of Birth Abroad he refused. He threatened to kick her out of the country if she tried to get the documents without his permission. Alicia began to fear if she didn't get Ogden out soon, she may never get out.
A Pathways' case manager worked with Alicia and an Embassy official to get Ogden's documentation and passport. An escape plan was carefully executed to get Ogden and Alicia home. After a couple of failed attempts, we were successful!
Because of donors like you, Alicia can live without abuse with Ogden safe at home in the USA.
