This is a story of a Syrian woman who was compelled to leave her home in the disastrous wake of the war and to travel to the USA, pregnant and with her wounded son, leaving behind her husband and remaining children, to seek medical care. She describes her struggles, suffering and triumphs, amidst feelings of loneliness and despair.
