A Gift for the Holidays: A Family Stays Together!

PFLAG National Executive Director Jody Huckaby blogged on the Huffington Post about a letter we received from Lenora Brandoli.  You may remember that Lenora wrote a heartfelt plea on behalf of her son on law, who was in jeopardy of being deported.

Well there's good news! On Wednesday, Michael Thomas and John Brandoli received life-changing news. After a year and a half fighting to remain together despite threats of deportation against Michael – and living with the constant fear of their family being torn apart – John and Michael received news that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) had agreed to join in a motion to stop Michael’s removal from the United States.

What better way to spend the holidays then with your loved ones...Michael and John, we're so happy for you. And Lenora, we know you'll be having a happy, happy New Year!
