This joyous reunion wasn't just a dream come true for Damba and Fina—it was a dream for Oprah's producers too. They worked for four months to arrange for Fina and Srenke's travel to the United States.
Along the way, producer Veronica says they ran into nearly every roadblock imaginable. "It was everything from a computer glitch to airline tickets," she says. "[Fina] had to travel over to Guinea to get her visa and she got stuck there for three weeks because of a computer glitch."
"All we had was hope," Jill says. "That we believed that a woman in Guinea Veronica was speaking to was going to make it happen for us."
