A Michigan woman whose husband died while they were in China to pick up their adopted daughter is returning home with her.
Republican Congressman Mike Rogers of Brighton cut through some red tape last night to make it happen.
Spokeswoman Sylvia Warner says Sandi Sheldon will return to her Lansing home sometime tomorrow with her 17-month-old daughter Hannah.
Sandi and Dennis Sheldon left for China on October 30th.
Dennis Sheldon died suddenly within days of being united with his new daughter.
The U.S. consulate in China told his widow that the toddler could not leave that country until paperwork about the family's new status had been filed.
The process normally takes weeks but the filing was fast-tracked.
