Matthew and Grace Huang, the American couple that had been facing charges in connection to their 8-year-old daughter’s death, are now free to leave Qatar.
Sunday, a Qatari appeals court overturned charges of wrongdoing against the couple. But when the Huangs tried to leave the country, they were stopped at the airport and had their passports confiscated.
The family’s attorney, Eric Volz, said the delay was caused by procedural steps that needed to be completed first.
The Huangs received assistance from U.S. Ambassador Dana Shell Smith, reflecting the intensity of American government interest in the case.
“We feel relieved. We feel gratitude to the legal system in the state of Qatar, which after some time worked as a good legal system should,” Smith told The Associated Press after ensuring the couple made it to their departure gate.
The Huangs’ adopted daughter, Gloria, died in March. The couple explained that the child would go through periods of time when she refused to eat.
They spoke to CBN News before they went to court about the case and their daughter’s death. Watch that interview here.
“Gloria was adopted from a difficult impoverished background. She was neglected, abused as a child.” Grace Huang told CBN News. “That is quite common for children adopted out of who have experienced hunger and malnutrition to experience difficulties.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
