(WHDH)  A Sudanese woman who refused to deny her Christian faith in the face of a death sentence is back on US soil.

Thursday night she landed in New Hampshire where her husband lives.

It was an emotional reunion for Meriam Ibrahim after a harrowing journey that captured the world's attention. 

Ibrahim, a Sudanese woman once sentenced to hang for being a Christian, arrived in Manchester, New Hampshire with her husband Daniel Wani and their two children, where they will make their new home.

In tears, Wani said they were overjoyed. 

"I can't describe it even if I say something, it's not enough," he said.
