Description : Father and son were reunited in 2005. "I remember the day I saw the picture of my son Larry on a poster in the street" says Clinton. "I had been spending years just praying for him. I could not believe it when just a couple of days later the people of the Red Cross came to my house with a letter from my son. Then "Go" he was safe! He had fled to Nigeria and he wanted to gt back with us. The man asked if I agreed! Of course I agreed! So he took my picture, and sent it to my son stapled to my reply" Continued Clinton with tears in his eyes, "For years, my son and I exchanged Red Cross messages. The situation in Liberia was still bad. And one day, the Red Cross organized his return. They traveled with him on a plane, then on a motorbike, and he came back home like a President!!!"
