Wonderful, happy news!

For those of you who were kind enough to take an interest and to sign petitions and such, please know that we heard this morning that my beloved sister-in-law, Homa Hoodfar, who was imprisoned in Iran more than three months ago, was released and deported this morning. We are beside ourselves with joy. Thanks for letting me share this ordeal with you, and I am very grateful for all the support I received from the community. Really, we are very happy today.

  • Great news, welcome her home.

  • It will be some time before we get to see her in person, but I expect we will have a video chat soon. Oh happy day! Of course she will be mobbed for a while by her friends and relatives in the UK first. Lots of very joyful folks will be lined up from London to Montreal. And she will need peace and rest. I bet she will be astonished to learn of all the attention her case inspired.

  • Wonderful news to wake up to this morning. Roll on the celebrations xxxx

  • Hey, Putland, thanks. I was just wondering how you are doing. Last I saw your husband was in hospital with a dislocated shoulder? Is that right? And you were thinking about getting some help in. How are you both? Love, ec

  • Yes he is still in hospital, as the HSE in Ireland are trying to get me some help at home so wont release him until then. This is his second dislocation in 3 months both shoulders dislocated as he keeps getting up on his own and falling. At least at the moment I can recharge my batteries and be stronger when he comes home. Thanks for reply xxx Great news for you at the moment enjoy the celebrations xxx
