Although it does appear that Arinaz no longer lives in Brunei, which I agree is sad if she no longer gets to see her children on the regular. Is that the case?
These children are very young and need their mother. If she was
living close by and had visitation that would be one thing, but if she
has left the country, this is a tragedy.
