A Brazilian mother shrugged off a seven-hour delay Sunday at Eppley Airfield while waiting to be reunited with the children she hadn't seen in nearly three years.
“A few more hours is fine after three years,” said Wanderlucia “Lucy” Oliveira de Paiva. “I just have to remember to breathe so I don't pass out and fall down.”
