Dutch Court Cuts Laura Dekker a Break

The Dutch family court has decide to leave Laura Dekker in her father's custody rather than put her in a group home. The authorities have also told her that barring other developments, she will be allowed to leave on her planned two-year voyage next summer, before she turns 15.

     This turn of events will return Laura to the road of hope for her circumnavigation, rather than treating her like another runaway. Dutch newspapers reported that Laura "jumped a hole in the sky" at the news.
