  • The Cost of One Mistake
  • Oh I hope my babies will be safe.
  • Come girls. It is time to wash for dinner.
  • Yuck! Multiracial  Children!   You're a disgrace!
  • It is   going to be  alright. Stay close.
  • Go Away! You Don't Belong Here!!!
  • Ugly childern!!!
  • My name is Fatima and this is my story. In the beginning I was alone, left stranded at 11 in Somalia. My family was gone, there was gun shots and I was lost. I had to run away, from my home, from where I grew up. I had to go.
  • Please don´t  hurt my girls! 
  • I  thought that it would get better, following  my neighbors to a refugee camp, but it didn't. I  became  pregnant  with two daughters. I finally wasn't  alone, although this time  I wish I was. My parents found me  but because I was not married  my family believes it  is  a shame on this world for me to    live.
  • Mom what's wrong with her?
  • I had to leave  and flee from the camp to keep my girls safe from the threats of my family. We  went to Thailand  where I was able to find a house for us and I thought this would turn out to be a suitable living environment    for my daughters but I was wrong.  The people there  were mean  towards us    and told us what we could and couldn't do. I needed to make sure  my girls were safe.
  • Why aren't we moving?
  • Not shortly after getting settled    in Thailand, we got arrested by the police  because we were illegal  immigrants.  We got dragged away from our home and put in a Thai detention center where the other women there would beat me at night. We had to live in the harsh conditions for a year.
  • It's going to be ok.
  • Attack!!!
  • The detention center was brutal. We were living under horrible conditions and  because of that my youngest daughter  became very ill.  She was suffering  and she would not live much longer without help.  Soon after due to the health concerns of my daughter, we got a secured   approval    to resettle  in the U.S. 
  • Our flights were booked and everything was going as planed. I thought that our bad luck was finally   over but no. The travel    ban that blocked Somalia refugees  was just announced and therefore we were stuck in a limbo  with other Somalia refugees and a very sick child.
