  1. This is uplifting thanks for showing it. Jacob should be commended for his hard work and empathy. He has been relentless in his reporting. I pray this family will be blessed to never be separated again. And we pray for the other families to have a happy ending as well.

  2. The Right keeps trying to minimize this. No matter how many families were destroyed, no matter by whom: for this family, and the other 3, IT IS EVERYTHING.

    It is NOT ENOUGH. It is NOT THE END.

    But for them, it is EVERYTHING.

  3. Surely there is a Human Rights group who can petition the U.N. Commissioner for Human Rights on behalf of these people for investigation and charging of those who instigated and carried out what are clearly crimes against humanity.

    1. @BenjWarrant We’re a signatory to the Geneva Convention. The US has not ratified any international human rights treaties since December 2002, when it ratified two optional protocols to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Since that time, important new treaties have been adopted and other long-standing treaties have gained new member states. Unfortunately, the US has too often remained outside these efforts. For example, the US is the only country other than Somalia that has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely and rapidly ratified human rights treaty in history. It is one of only seven countries-together with Iran, Nauru, Palau, Somalia, Sudan and Tonga- that has failed to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.

      We have to stop letting Republicans pretend to govern, they’ve proven themselves to be unworthy and pretty much a train wreck.

    1. @E. Of course “Loving” … as typically REPUBLICAN… as long as you can make a BUCK PROFIT… GRIFT AND SWINDLE… IT IS ALL LOVING.

  4. Yes Bryan – she really is there. I wish you all the best for the future.
    He’d be locked up for less time if he’d committed a crime!!! When is Miller going to be charged with cruelty to children?

  5. this is wonderful but i worry about the little ones who won’t remember who their parents even are

    1. Hope fully for those families at some point D.N.A. and genealogy will be able to reunite them and to bad the bill can’t be sent to Trump and the Republicans that supported this war-like behaviours

  6. I’m in tears. So happy for this family, and I pray for the rest who haven’t been reunited…yet.

  7. 2021 and this cruelty has been perpetuated. Truly shameful. Happy for Bryan and his Mom…… God doesn’t make boundaries, only some politicians do.
