This is some VERY special news! Our dear friends from Moncton have finally been granted permanent residence in Canada!!
In 2011, while living in Moncton, our neighbours and dear friends, The Maengs, found out that their family was being deported back to South Korea because of their young son's autism. Thanks to the Times & Transcript's Eric Lewis, the news went public on the front page on a Saturday morning.
As part of the reaction to losing part of our community, I created a comic strip tribute to the Maengs. Thanks to social media, it circulated quickly, and I'm told that it helped to bring attention to the Maengs' plight.
