He cared about me and my children when other people didn’t.”

TEXT:

Bamako, Mali

Africa

 

In 2011, after a dark period in my life, my marriage ended…

 

 

My ex-husband abducted our daughter, Muna, and took her to Mali - a dangerous part of Africa.

 

I didn’t know whether she was alive or dead.

 

 

I reached out to Senator McConnell, and he took up my cause personally.

 

I can’t even talk about him without getting emotional…

 

He cares.

 

He cared about me and my children when other people didn’t.

 

He let it be known that this little Kentuckian… needed to come home.

 

Senator McConnell worked with our State Department and the Mali government to hold them accountable.

 

 

When we won our fight, Senator McConnell met us at the airport.

 

With faith and hard work, we turned despair into joy.

 

 

I never stopped fighting for my daughter – and Mitch never stopped fighting for us.
