update

It it with the utmost joy in my heart that I can report that Mechele, Colin and Audrey are enjoying the weekend together at last!!! Tears of joy and lots of hugs and kisses were shared. Each of you have tread this journey with us for so long that finally some joy can be shared with all of you. We are getting internet service next week at the apartment and Mechele is anxious to send messages to all of our dear friends and family. For the first time in over three years I can go to sleep with a smile and thankfulness that my child has been reunited with her husband and daughter. YOU my dear friends have helped so very much in making this dream become a reality. Our journey is not ended, but we have taken a HUGE step in bringing her home for good. Let's just take a deep breath for now, and revel in this blessing. My heart is full of love and gratitude to every single one of you, and with great appreciation to Terry and Brian, who truly are Angels among us!! Will post later in the week....my love and many hugs to each of you.

A VERY happy and GRATEFUL mom!
Sandy

Your post really touched my heart. I am so
happy for Mechele and her family. May this be the start of a lifetime of freedom for Mechele. So glad she has so many supporters here and in many others forums who wish her only good fortune.

Terry and Brian you really deserve to be called Angels!

There are times in your life when somehow, somewhere, someone comes along, and changes you forever... Because of a chance tv journalism show, I have been changed forever, by being allowed to get to know the story of Mechele and her family.
I have learned to be more patient with my little girl- because all I had to do was think how Mechele would so rather be in my shoes at that time...
I have learned to enjoy all the little things each day
I have learned to not take for granted -SO many things, like hugs, shopping when I want, sleeping each night in the same home as my family, and many more.
My heart overflows with gratitude for all the angels that have helped to reunite this family tonight, and my prayers are full with the wish that they never, NEVER be split apart again!
May Gob bless and protect you all,
Laura

This is fantasically good news.
For me, it is only tempered by my astonishment that prosecutors still seem to think theyhave a case.

For now though, it is wonderful that you can celebrate the moment -whilst anticipating a final celebration when this whiole process finally comes to an end.

Many good wishes

Sandy that's what True Friends are for and We won't turn Our back on Mechele at all!

I am so happy and now I can rest too, without having to turn to adn.com now. Whew what a relief too.

Love You All and tell Mechele I said hi!

Cyndi said...

Your heart must feel a lot lighter now. So happy for you all.

I read the hecklers and wonder if they are a vulgar social class who see Mechele as a chance to get even with what they see as the priviledged class. It has nothing to do with economic status, but it might explain the prejudice that was used to convict Mechele.

Mechele needs to write a book. I hope you are doing well, I am so excited you are free. Good Luck!

Hello my Dear Friends and Family: I am truly blessed. I am so sorry that it’s taken me almost a week to sign on here. I have been shell shocked. Im going full force today. Set up a facebook account, twitter and email. Its difficult to express my gratitude to all, because words aren’t enough. I know that I wouldn’t be sitting here with my daughter if it weren’t for all of you and your strength. You all worked so hard for my release. I should say rescue. You not only rescued me, physically, but spiritually. I love you all!
I will post a lengthy update this evening detailing the last few days and where were at.
