An Albanian woman, Gjystina Hines, deported 20 months ago to Albania has been given permission to come back to Livingston County, USA.

But it is going to be a bittersweet return for Gjystina who was pregnant when U.S. Immigration officials sent her back in November 2007.

She will be alone when she arrives in the United States.

Her 8-month-old son died just before Christmas from complications from surgery for a birth defect.

“Her mother-in-law, Tracey Hines, tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell she cried when she found out Tuesday that Immigration officials had approved a waiver allowing Gjystina Hines to return.”

According to Tracey Hines her daughter-in-law could be back within one or two weeks.
