From what I understand she fled her country of residence as soon as her husband told her he wanted to file a divorce... what kind of mother would just leave her child behind?

From what I've read, he took the child and told her he would get her for prostitution, etc. which could equal the death penalty or life in prison if she's convicted over there. She had to flee the country or she would pretty much be locked there forever depending on the circumstances.

I believe Caroline's safety should be #1 focus... I would also like to hear the father's side of the story! If she fled her country of residence because they were in "danger" - why would she leave her child behind? I'm a mother and I would NEVER under any circumstances flee without my child... I would step in front of moving traffic - I would walk across hot coals - whatever it takes... but I would NEVER leave to just protect myself. Maybe Caroline doesn't need a mommy like Stacy after all.

That's so strange because I read that she actually got CAUGHT having the affair! I guess the truth is - it doesn't really matter because she ran out on her daughter and that's an undisputed fact. I wonder why no one is talking about the fact that she got fired from her job the day before she fled the country?

UAE law does need proof of these accusations before putting the person being accused to death or even prison and not just a husband’s statement. For a mother to flee that quickly, she must have been guilty of some charges her husband accused her of. As a mother I have to agree with the other poster that no matter what, you never leave a child behind especially if you think she may be in danger...Sounds very shady and one sided. I will pray for the little and would love to hear the full story. I fear that not enough thought will go into this case and rule hastily with the mom and who knows when she will run out on her little girls again.

I've been doing a lot more reading on this subject and that is 100% true - she must have been guilty of something to leave so quickly. The problem I see is that she is going very public very quickly and we are not getting the full picture. The father is a decorated war hero with tons of character witnesses lining up to speak on his behalf...and all the public hears is the mother's side? I don't believe she is as "innocent" as the media is portraying her to be!

Unless she was innocent, of course.

Thank you all for questioning this story and commenting!! You are all absolutely correct-- only one side of the story is being told, and it is untruthful. The truth will come out-- that Charles Peters is an honorable, loving, kind, caring, and stable father and husband. I have witnessed this first hand. Caroline is a beautiful, healthy, happy little girl who is being extremely well taken care of by her adoring father.

I agree with the comments that these articles are just so one sided. I feel terrible for Caroline but really there are many things that strike me as strange about Stacy. She talks about having had problems in her marriage and that things were really bad. Then WHY did she bring a child into the marriage in the first place?? Should you not be working on your marriage before bringing a child into the world? And I read another article which said she was pregnant yet again!! And why did she go to Dubai if things were so bad? And of course what others have said - why did she LEAVE her child in danger (if in fact she is in danger) and run to the US?? Sounds rather fishy to me. I hope all works well for Caroline and things work out. I also don't understand why the media is going over and hearing just the mom's side of the story. Typical - the men are always portrayed as the bad ones. And this I say being a woman myself.

Thanks "Carolines Friend". I did. So what I speculated was accurate. Really hope and pray the media airs his side of the story too! Too much of negative publicity for such a good man. Wonder how he is just taking this lying down.

In all this "He said" and "She said" - with everyone taking sides and villifying either the father or the mother of this little girl, depending on which parent is considered more 'worthy'- the child herself seems to have become little more than a pawn in this sad case.
Nobody is a saint - but does this mean that a child should be deprived of either one of her parents if her mother or father is less than perfect? This child should have both of her parents involved in her care. Instead we see polarised opinions which simply serve to widen the gulf between mother and father - and a little girl caught in the middle of a parental battleground.
These custody disputes are often referred to as "tug-of-love" cases; a misnomer if ever there was one! Hatred, vindictiveness, fear, bitterness maybe - anything but love.

No death penalty has been ordered in U.A.E. in recent history, let alone executed. Everything else you stated, I agree with.
