“God heard our prayers,” said Gabriel Wanni of Manchester, Ibrahim’s brother-in-law.
No party was planned for Thursday night.
“They’re going to be tired and exhausted,” Wanni said.
After Ibrahim’s release, the family met Pope Francis at the Vatican July 24.
Wanni on Thursday thanked those who helped secure Ibrahim’s release.
