(AP) — It had been six years since Glenda Valdez said goodbye to her 3-year-old daughter, Emely, in Honduras. Then, last month, she caught a glimpse of a televised AP photo of a little girl in a red hoodie and knew that Emely had made the trip alone into the United States.

On Sunday, the child was returned to her mother’s custody in Texas. Now, they wait for judges to decide the girl’s fate in the United States. Her mother says the plan is to remain together forever.
