Now, 20-year-old Nick is coming home, even though it wasn’t his first choice.

“He really wants to go back,” says Lucy. “If it were up to him, he would not be coming home from Istanbul.”

At his mother’s urging, Nick made it to Istanbul on Monday to make his way back to New York. Lucy says she has no problem with Nick returning to Cairo, but she wants him at home in Westchester County until things in Egypt settle down.
