…she and her parents love and respect each other, and will “try to resolve their differences through counseling.”

Rifqa BaryIn answer to the many, many prayers for Rifqa Bary’s safety, the teen who converted to Christianity from Islam, then ran away from home for fear of her father’s retaliation, will be able to stay with a foster family until she is eighteen.

The Columbus, Ohio 17-year-old had run away to Florida last year when she claimed her father had threatened her life since she’d become a Christian.

A court ruling meant she had to return to Ohio, but has stayed in state foster care while her parents battled to keep her in their home.

This week a settlement was reportedly reached between Rifqa and her parents, allowing her to stay in foster care until the age of 18, at which time she would be free to live where she wants.

Rifqa’s attorney stated that she and her parents love and respect each other, and will “try to resolve their differences through counseling.”
