The accounts of abuse Jocelyn conveyed to Pathways' staff was horrifying. She was pregnant with her daughter Ruby and her husband was so physically abusive she feared he would kill her and Ruby before she was even born.
We needed to get Jocelyn back to the USA from Peru before Ruby was born. Over the course of one month with careful strategic planning, help from the American Embassy and a lot of moving pieces falling into place, we succesfully got Jocelyn home.
Ruby was born a few weeks later. Jocelyn and Ruby are doing great living with her parents. Jocelyn hopes her husband will get the help he needs so he can be a better father to Ruby when she gets older. Right now though, she is focusing on starting a new life with Ruby safe at home.
