When Genovica Niculescu-Baldeanu got fed up with her native Romania in 1977, she told the government so and demanded freedom. Within three months, the Romanian government, then under the repressive leadership of Nicolae Ceausescu, allowed her to leave the country. Three years later her family followed. It was a miracle. For most of her life, Niculescu-Baldeanu (pronounced: Nee-koo- les -koo Ball- dan -uh) has had a knack for miracles.
