Bismillah Alrahman Alrahim,


It has been a long time of silence and focusing to get my son’s freedom back. However, all my efforts had been worthless but Inshallah one day Sami and I will be able to move completely forward. Since the day I decided to post Sami’s story I have received so many supportive message and much more offering to help, but at the end all ended the same way. First of all, people message me to tell me how sorry they feel about Sami situation and to say that what Sulaiman did to me is not right. Then people offers me their help, so they keep messaging me to ask details, contact information, and other information that may be helpful for them to find Sulaiman or his family. But then suddenly they disappear and I don’t know anything about them again.  Am not blaming this people in any way or doubting about their intent to help me to get Sami’s freedom back. I have no doubt that some day Allah will give Sami’s right’s back Inshallah and know that I am not alone fighting this battle.



Sami’s life has not change much. He is going to a day care every day; he is learning so many things. He is a smart and adventurous boy Mashallah. Also he is enjoying so much to be around my family because they love him very much and I cannot complain Hamdulillah because they are spoiling him. But not all is happiness; Sami is still illegal in my own native country. I have tried to register him in the ministry of foreign affairs 8 times so far, and they had refused to register Sami in my country without his dad permission and signature in all the documents required


However, I am not giving up yet even if it seems that all the doors are closing to find a way. I cannot lie, sometimes I got very tired to be trying and paying the expensive fee per day for having illegal in my own country. Sometimes I had cried because of that because I got so frustrated, and I had even curse the day that I allowed Sulaiman to signed Sami’s papers, sometimes I had think that if I refused his petition Sami wouldn’t need to pass for all this things that might mess up his life. The Guatemalan laws are very clear and states the following “U.S. citizens do not need a visa for a stay of 90 days or less. That period can be extended for an additional 90 days upon application to Guatemalan immigration. (If the initial period of stay granted upon entry is less than 90 days, any extension would be granted only for the same number of days as the initial authorization.) There is a daily fine for each day that a traveller overstays his/her permission to be in Guatemala, which must be paid directly to the Guatemalan Immigration Agency.” This law means that if Sami is still illegal when he has enough age to attend to the regular school he won’t be able since there is not rights for any illegal person in here, sore as in US or any other country. Do all of you think that this is good for my son? Sulaiman really has the right to mess up his son’s life just for being coward and denied his mistakes?  What I will do when the time of registering him in elementary school comes if he is still being illegal? I have so many questions spinning my mind.


People who think I’m behind Alrajhi family money have judged me harshly, but no, I don’t need their money Hamdullillah, but if they would like to cooperate in Sami’s future education it would be more than welcome. Is not that am leaving in luxury but God has never left us alone and has provided me with a lot of work that allows me to cover Sami’s basic needs. And I’m sure that Allah will never abandon us and will provide us whatever we need. As I said before, if Sulaiman or any member of his family wants to come to Sami’s life they will be more than welcome, I haven’t change my mind about it because I know that eventually Sami will ask about them. However, I am still praying for them to have pity in their hearts because even if they know about Sami’s existence they have been denying everything related to Sami. May be you are asking yourself, how this girl knows that they knows about Sami? Well, I know because the Imam of the Masjid called Sulaiman father several times and he has refused to help me to get Sami’s custody. Also Awasser got contact by the same person, they did answer and asked for Sami’s documents but then somehow they refused to help, saying, “Mr. Abdulaziz Saleh Abdullah Alrajhi (Sulaiman’s father) is not willing to cooperate by giving Sulaiman’s phone number. I also contacted the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs twice but they never got back to me. I had tried to contact every single entity in Saudi Arabia but they just ignored me. I think that they are not realizing the damage they can cause to Sami emotionally, psychological, and in his life by doing this to him, they are not punishing me, they are punishing an innocent child who has not fault at all. What is seems not to be clear is that Sami is that Sami is LEGALLY RECOGNIZED by Sulaiman Abdulaziz Saleh Alrajhi in the United States of America, so Sulaiman does has rights and responsibilities toward his own and first son. The only thing am asking for is to get Sulaiman back to the US to fight peacefully the custody of my son and then he can be free to do his life whatever he pleases. In any sense I want him back to be with me, I already learn that he is just the biological father of my son and that he is really a bad person. I do know that he will have to deal with his conscience and no doubt that he will have to give accounts of his behave to Allah in this life and in the Day of Judgment.


So, I am kindly asking with a humble heart a favor, is any of the readers know this family or Sulaiman please tell me, I do need to move forward with Sami and I want the only thing a mother wants for her child, I WANT HIM TO BE HAPPY, TO GET A GOOD LIFE, AND BE SUCESSFUL Inshallah but in order to fulfill that Sami NEEDS HIS FREEDOM BACK, PLEASE HELP US! If anyone have information please write me to mandrechang.sami@gmail.com

لقد مر وقت طويل من الصمت مع التركيز على اعادة الحرية لحياة ابني. ومع ذلك كل جهودي كانت بدون فائدة وسيأتي اليوم الذي أكون فيه قادرة بالمضي قدماً مع ابني. لقد تلقيت الكثير من رسائل الدعم كما تلقيت الكثير من رسائل المساعدة منذ اليوم الذي قررت فيه طرح قصة سامي. ولكن في النهاية جميعها انتهت بنفس الطريقة. أولاً, كثير ممن راسلوني ليخبروني بشعورهم عن مدى أسفهم حول وضع سامي وليقولوا أيضاً أن مافعله سليمان لي كان سيىء. ثم عرضوا علي مساعدتهم, وظلو يراسلوني بالسؤال عن التفاصيل, معلومات الاتصال, وغيرها من المعلومات التي قد تساعدهم في العثور على سليمان أو أحد من عائلته. وبعد ذلك اختفوا فجأة ولا أعرف عنهم شيئا. أنا لا ألوم أياً من هؤلاء بأي شكل من الأشكال أو التشكيك بنيتهم في مساعدتي باعادة حرية ابني. ولا يوجد لدي أدنى شك بأن الله سبحانه وتعالى سيعطي سامي حريته ان شاء الله وللعلم فاني لست وحدي في هذه المعركة.
لم تتغير حياة سامي كثيراً, بدأ يذهب الى الحضانة كل يوم, بدأ يتعلم أشياء كثيرة, وهو ما شاء الله ذكي ومغامر. كما أنه يستمتع كثيراً بوجوده حول عائلتي لأنهم يحبونه كثيراً ويدلـلونه والحمد لله. ولكن ليست كل حياته مليئة بالسعادة; سامي لا يزال غير قانوني في بلدي الأم. لقد حاولت أن أسجله في وزارة الخارجية 8 مرات الى الان, ولكنهم رفضوا تسجيله دون اذن والده وتوقيعه على جميع الأوراق المطلوبة. ومع ذلك, لن أستسلم حتى لو كان يبدو بأن جميع الأبواب مغلقة. لن أكذب, أتعبتني المحاولات ودفع الرسوم الباهظة يومياً لوجود شخص مقيم بطريقة غير شرعية في بلدي. لقد بكيت وصابني الاحباط لهذا السبب. حتى أني لعنت اليوم الذي سمحت فيه لسليمان بالتوقيع على أوراق سامي, وأحيانأ أفكر بأني اذا رفضت التماسه, فإن سامي لن يحتاج الى المرور لما قد يعرقل حياته.
قوانين حكومة غواتيمالا واضحة جداً وتنص على مايلي “مواطنوا الولايات المتحدة لا يحتاجون الى تأشيرة للاقامة لمدة 90 يوماً أو أقل. ويمكن تمديد هذه الفترة لـ 90 يوماً إضافية بناءً على طلب يتم تقديمه لادارة الهجرة. (اذا كانت المدة الأساسية من البقاء تمنح عند الدخول أقل من 90 يوما, فأن التمديد سيتم فقط لنفس عدد الأيام التي منحت عند الدخول.) وهناك غرامة يومية على المسافر الذي يتجاوز المدة المصرحة له/لها للتواجد في غواتيمالا والتي يجب أن تدفع مباشرة الى ادارة هجرة غواتيمالا.” هذا القانون يعني أنه اذا كان سامي لا يزال غير قانوني عندما يكون لديه العمر الكافي للذهاب الى المدرسة, فإنه لن يكون قادراً للذهاب لأنه لا توجد هناك حقوق لأي شخص غير قانوني, كما في الولايات المتحدة أو أي بلد آخر. هل تعتقدون أن هذا أمر جيد لابني؟ سليمان لديه الحق في أن يحول حياة ابنه الى جحيم لأنه جبان وأنكر أخطائه؟ ماذا سأفعل عندما يحين الوقت لتسجيله في المدرسة الابتدائية اذا كان لا يزال غير قانوني؟ لدي الكثير من الاسئلة تدور في ذهني.
الأشخاص الذين يعتقدون بأني أبحث عن أموال أسرة الراجحي قد حكموا علي بقسوة. لكن لا, أنا لست بحاجة الى أموالهم الحمد لله. لكن اذا كانوا يرغبون بالمشاركة في مساعدة سامي في مستقبله التعليمي, فإن هذا الأمر مرحب به كثيراً. هذا لا يعني بأني أعيش حياة الترف ولكن الله لم ينسانا أبداً, لم ينسى أي يوفر لسامي جميع احتياجاته الأساسية. وأنا متأكدة من أن الله لن يتخلى عنا أبداً وسيوفر لنا جميع مانحتاجه. كما قلت سابقاً, اذا كان سليمان أو أي من أفراد عائلته يرغبون في الدخول لحياة سامي فهذا أمر مرحب به كثيراً. لم أغير رأيي بهذا الشأن لأنني على يقين بأن سامي هو من سيسأل عنهم في النهاية. ومع ذلك فإني أدعوا لهم ليحصلو ويحسوا بالشفقة في قلوبهم, لأنه حتى مع علمهم بوجود سامي, فانهم لم ينكروا جميع مايتعلق بسامي. قد تسأل نفسك, كيف لهذه البنت تعلم بأن عائلة الراجحي على علم بوجود سامي؟ حسناً, أعلم لأن امام المسجد اتصل بوالد سليمان عدة مرات ولكن والد سليمان رفض مساعدتي في الحصول على وصاية ابني. بالاضافة الى أن نفس الشخص تواصل مع جمعية أواصر, وتجاوبوا معه كما طلبوا جميع الاوراق الخاصة بسامي ولكن بطريقة ما رفضوا مساعدتي بحجة أن السيد/ عبدالعزيز صالح عبدالله الراجحي (والد سليمان) غير مستعد بالتصريح عن هاتف ابنه سليمان. كما أني خاطبت وزارة الخارجية السعودية مرتين ولكنهم لم يردوا على خطاباتي. حاولت مخاطبة كل شخص له علاقة بالموضوع بالمملكة العربية السعودية ولكنهم تجاهلوني. أعتقد بأنهم غير مدركين الخطر الذين قد يلحقونه بحياة سامي عاطفياً ونفسياً بفعلهم هذا. هم لا يعاقبوني, بل يعاقبون طفل بريء لم يخطئ أبداً. ماقد يكون غير واضح لهم هو أن سامي معترف به قانوناً من سليمان عبدالعزيز صالح الراجحي في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية. لذا فان سليمان له حقوق ومسؤوليات تجاه ابنه الأول والوحيد. ما أريده هو إعادة سليمان الى الولايات المتحدة ليصارع بأمان بالوصاية على ابني بعد ذلك له الحرية المطلقة للتمتع بحياته بالطريقة التي تعجبه. بمعنى آخر أريده أن يعود لي. لقد تعلمت بأن سليمان هو فقط والد ابني البيولوجي وأنه شخص سيئ. أعلم بأنه سيتحتم عليه التعامل مع العواقب وبدون شك بأنه سيتوجب عليه أن يعاقب نتيجة تصرفاته من الله في الدنيا والآخرة.
لذا, فإني وبكل ود أسأل بقلب متواضع لخدمة, اذا كان أي من السادة القراء يعرف عائلة سليمان فرجاءً ليقوم بإخباري, أنا مضطرة للمضي قدماً مع سامي وبحاجة لأمر واحد فقط أي أم تكون بحاجة اليه لابنها, أريده أن يكون سعيداً, أن يحظى بحياة جميلة, وأن ينجح فيها ان شاء الله, ولكن من أجل أن تتحقق متطلبات سامي, هو بحاجة لاعادة حريته. نرجوا مساعدتكم. ان كان هناك اي شخص لديه معلومات يرجى مراسلتي على العنوان mandrechang.sami@gmail.com

    It is so sad that you still have not heard back.. what a sham.
    I believe you have to translate this update to Arabic because lots of people from KSA visit the blog..

    • Mandre

      Inshallah someone will be willing to translate my words to Arabic… and somehow Sami and i will find a way to move forward in our live 🙂 but in order to do that we need his freedom back.

      • Wallah you are a great mother also you are strong enough mashallah to carry on you life.
        I post last update in my fb.

        Best wishes
        Kisses to your angel Sami

      • Thanks a lot for sharing the story, inshallah Sulaiman will grant Sami’s freedom.

  2. g

    have you heard anything from the father at all?

  3. JJ

    I believe you did not hear anything because Sulaiman’s dad divorced his mom and his father moved with his new wife and kids to another city. so, Sulaiman probably is so sad because of that and he is busy with his mother’s sadness and desperation

  4. An Angry Formerly Abandoned Mother

    Hey SCLB Site Admin and Readers, here is a little rant and message to stay positive: I just wanna say that my child was abandoned by his dumb-ass SPERM DONOR, yes he aint no father he is just some loser I fell for once. Every time he tries to waltz back into our lives acting like he didn’t do anything, I get so angry because he doesn’t even know what his own kid sounds like! Makes me so mad! Even for the Eid he didn’t even bother calling or emailing yet he manages to send me insulting messages calling me a b*tch and whore and “bad Muslim”. Hahaha okay whatever I’m not the one suffering from pseudo-multi-personality disorder in other countries there, boy. This is why when my son grows up and inherits everything I saved for him that if this guy ever comes knocking at his door, HE WILL TOSS HIM SOME PENNIES AND TELL HIM TO F*CK OFF hahaha. Where was he when I needed to buy my baby diapers and clothes?? Where was he when I had to take him to the hospital because he had an allergic reaction, got a skin rash and couldn’t breathe?? He is lucky I don’t put his face on blast telling the world what kind of person he really is. The only reason I don’t is because our lives are better without his name being mentioned.

    **End Rant.

  5. I’m really sorry for your situation. I hope you find comfort in the fact that you have an absolutely beautiful boy masha’Allah. I can only offer you dua3 and prayer. I really hope your situation gets resolved. I can only hope that a certain Saudi mans up.

    With sisterly love and positive thoughts,


    • Mandre

      Salam Sister,

      Jazakallah Khair, i really appreciate your duas 🙂 I believe that sooner than later Sami will be able to be free again and i also pray for Sulaiman’s to become a better father for his only and first son.

  6. Peace

    I feel sorry for you and for the things that you need to face of this issue.

    I think the best thing to do is to go to the Saudi Embassy in your country and to seek their advice and support. I am sure they will help you to find sami’s dad in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Missions abroad are aware of these issues.

    I wish you the best and good luck

    • thanks Peace,

      I already went to the Saudi Embassy in Washington last December. Most of them were rude and mean, specially Hamad Alrasheed.
