Bring Eli Home: Sara's testimony before the House Foreign Relations subcommittee

I received this e-mail from Sara this morning.  Though I didn't ask for permission to post it here, Sara is happy to have her story shared by whatever means possible.  I'm sure she'd be okay with it. 

Hello and good morning,

I arrived home last evening after my trip to Washington, D.C. where I was invited to share Eli's story before the House Foreign Relations subcommittee. I had the opportunity to meet with a number of key government representatives to do all I could to get them involved with Eli's case and that of countless other children being wrongfully retained in foreign countries.

[Here] is a link to the full hearing - my bit starts around 1:08, but each testimony is a compelling story of the struggles that so-called 'left-behind parents' face.

Thank you for your support and prayers!

With love,

Sara and Eli, too!

ETA:  Sara e-mailed me this afternoon saying that yes, I have her permission to post the e-mail she sent.  She wants to get the information out about Eli to everyone that she can.  Feel free to link on.
