"These pictures make me think that she loves me, that she cares about me," said Toby Shi, tears falling freely down his face in the Brooklyn apartment he shares with his grandfather. His mother, Jian Ling Lin, was arrested in Alexandria, Va. during an Immigration and Customs Enforcement sting four months ago but wasn’t charged with anything. She remains in a detention center, leaving 10-year-old Toby and his 6-month-old sister, Mia, with their grandfather. The photos provide some comfort for Toby, who cried showing them to NBC 4 New York. “But I miss my mom.”
