PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia couple stranded overseas with their newborn baby will soon be coming home. Stephen and Zara Wilcox traveled to Ghana for the birth of their baby girl back in February.

The U.S. embassy would not issue their daughter a passport until she got a DNA test, but the embassy would not do the test because of the pandemic.
