The Romeikes are a German family seeking political asylum in the U.S. due to persecution in Germany--the removal of children from their home and threats of fines and jail time--for homeschooling their children. They have settled in Tennessee, but they have a very important hearing coming up in Memphis on January 20th (next Wednesday).
You can read more about their case on the HSLDA website if you enter "Romeike" in the search box. It is a good reminder of how fragile a thing freedom is.
Do pray for a happy outcome.
