Wife of pastor Saeed Abedini, jailed in Iran for his faith, explains the ‘shock’ of his release:

His wife, Naghmeh Abedini, who grew up in Boise and lives there with the couple’s two children, Rebekka, 9, and Jacob, 7, told the Washington Post on Saturday that she woke her two children up early at 7:30 a.m. to tell them of the news that their father had been released. “They were shocked,” she said. “You can probably hear them now, jumping up and down, asking ‘When are we going to see him?’ It’s been a time of rejoicing.”

.....so are over a dozen Iranian agents.  Not a fair or smart trade, especially when the President DID have the Sword of Damocles ($150 billion in assets, etc..) hanging over Teheran's head.  He's given away the store for bupkus, sad to say.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

It will be interesting to see what happens with their marriage after she publicly back-stabbed him a couple months ago with her weird allegations of abuse even while he was in prison.

It seems to me that we need to pray for both of them coming back.  He's going to have some degree of PTSD from what he endured there, and add to that what you mention, it could be really ugly, damaging to them, their kids, their church, and more.
