    Robyn, you and your children are truly an inspiration. How courageous all 3 of you have been. Thanks for sharing the video, I loved watching your son wave to the camera as he pushed his little sister. You are an amazing mom!

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Absolutely great news, best news I've heard lately, your boy is home!

    You Schotts aren't related to the Schotts of Paradise, California, are you?

    At any rate, congratulations on your son's return! Now, let's bring 'em ALL home, ASAP...
