The Huffington Post's Samira Nanda caught up with Cindy Hickey and Laura Fattal, mothers of the two American hikers still imprisoned in Iran.

The women expressed "overwhelming" elation at the release of the third hiker, Sarah Shourd, and discussed the handling of the situation by the Obama administration.

Of course, they are both anxiously awaiting the release of their own children. "In that same second, I said I wished it was me, that I could also have my son back," Fattal said.
