Official news that Habiba and her baby have been reunited. What an amazing show of support internationally. NEVER doubt the power of committed mothers (and all other supporters). I love the slogan “We are all Habiba”, because we are all mothers and the outpouring of support shows how deeply entrenched our mothering instincts are — just reading about another mother and baby forcibly separated for absolutely no justification brought out our mama bear feelings! I feel grateful that here in Knoxville, TN, we had an event in support of Habiba. Even though I could not attend due to a previous engagement, knowing there are women here locally as well as internationally fills me with joy and hope for our world. Leave a comment if there was an event in your area!

Their fight isn’t over and their trauma is not to be ignored or forgotten. Keep finding your voice and a voice for others in the world.
