Two months of wondering are now over. Daisy Roth and her two daughters are reunited with Samuel Rother, after being stranded in China during the coronavirus outbreak.

"There was so much uncertainty," Samuel Roth said. "It's nice to be home."

Daisy, and daughters Abigail and Adeline, were visiting family in Wuhan, China - the center of the coronavirus outbreak. When the disease started spreading, they knew they had to leave.

"If the baby got sick, we had no where to go," said Daisy. "We had to find rides to the airport, we had to get through customs."

However, they did get approved for an early charter flight and the three were put in a two week quarantine. No one in the family experienced symptoms, but it was required by the CDC.

"We were treated well at the base," Daisy said. "But we are happy to be back together."

Adeline, who is now 11-months-old just started taking her first steps. Little moments like that are what the family say they are most excited about spending together.
