"God has done a miracle for me. Today we are together. I can say that I'm very happy." For the first time in five years, Congolese refugee Mwenebatu Mwenemkamba is hugging his wife and son the emotional reunion marking the start of their new life together in America."I mean. I just want to tell him I love him so much," said Mapenzi Mweniake moments after reunifying with her husband. For more than 20 years, Mwenemkamba and Mapenzi Mweniake lived in a refugee camp in Tanzania after fleeing war and ethnic cleansing in the Congo. #chicago
