The Patriot Post® · Mariam Ibrahim's Children Granted Citizenship

Tony Perkins: “When Mariam [Ibrahim’s] story of captivity in Sudan started making headlines in the U.S., hearts went out to the young mom of two. Together with Hill leaders, other international groups, and people like you, FRC worked for months on Mariam’s release. In an answer to the prayers of millions of people, Mariam was not only freed but flown to the United States, where she and her husband Daniel are making a new life. America adopted the family before they even touched down on U.S. soil, but today, the country is making it official. [Tuesday], we got the incredible news that Martin and Maya, the couple’s toddler children, have finally been granted U.S. citizenship – the culmination of a lot of hard work from attorneys and other faith-based groups involved in her case. We couldn’t be happier to welcome these living legacies of Mariam’s courage into the U.S. family. Throughout this whole ordeal, faithful friends like you have prayed for, contributed to, and followed the [Ibrahim’s] story. Our deepest thanks to all of you who stood with us as we worked on Mariam, Daniel, and the kids’ behalf!”
