She expressed her thanks and gratitude to the Government of the UAE and the authorities in the state for returning her son to the UAE.

The child's mother had accompanied her son to Sydney and left him with her family on a short vacation for 10 days after which he was supposed to return to Dubai.
However, the unexpected international flight closures due to the precautionary measures over the new coronavirus, COVID-19, prevented him from returning to the UAE.
Lucas expressed his happiness at returning to the country and being able to reunite with his happy parents in their second homeland, the UAE.
''Thank you Government of UAE for trying hard to bring me back. I am very happy,'' he said.
