Widow's Odyssey to the U.S.

"On September 28, Sina and her sons Jimmy, Johnny, Peter and Anthony stepped off a plane in Illinois.  That day came 15 years after the death of Sina’s husband – the boys’ American father – set them on an odyssey through the channels of US immigration law: first trying to secure acknowledgement of her sons’ citizenship, then attempting to secure permanent residency under an obscure process known as a “widow petition”." - Stuart White, Oct. 9, 2013.
