"When is it?" The issue has occurred again and again, when Alex called home to his mother, Aoy, and papfar, Thomas Rasmussen, from Bangkok.
And now it happens so. Finally. They like the Mint family in Køge look forward to a new year, where they can stay together in Denmark.
"We are insanely happy for what has happened," says Thomas Rasmussen.
15-year-old Alex is also one of the children, who last fall was expelled because he was believed not to be able to be integrated in Denmark.
One of the approximately 83 children with a new law Thursday morning was passed in the Parliament, gets a new chance to get a residence permit in Denmark.
En B. T. at the end of november last year was in the airport, could Alex's mother, Aoy, barely find words for the pain, it was to send his son back to Bangkok.
"I have very hurt in the heart. I can almost not say anything," said Aoy, and drew a deep breath before she could continue: "It hurts in my heart. I hope that I will in the future, if I work hard, can take down and see my son again. Right now I don't know when I can see him again. But I hope that it will be soon."
Alex himself was almost wordless in his resignation.
"He was very upset for a long time. Total hopeless. But in the middle of summer, as it began to stir in Denmark, he got a renewed energy, and began to take harder fat in the school," says Thomas Rasmussen.
Now he is back in the top of the class and is just finishing up a semester, before he has a three-month holiday.
"So it is perfect timing, if he may soon be allowed to travel to Denmark," says Thomas Rasmussen, which, however, doesn't quite know how long the processing of a new application to take.
Alex has also expressed concern about the law now also holds.
"He is a clever boy, so he has asked what happens if there now comes a new government," says Thomas Rasmussen.
There was, however, not a single vote against the bill, so the concern can be his papfar now also sweep away.
"So it can here nightmare will soon end, and we can begin to live a normal family life together," says Thomas Rasmussen.Updated Date: 19 December 2019, 23:00
