Adversity:
This story is about an Afghan woman that bears a lot of problem and also she is facing with lots of problems. She says “I got marry when I was 14 years old and after 1 year the wars started in our country so I and my husband became obligate to immigrate and we went to Iran country but we didn’t have any good situation on that country and 9 years ago we came back to our country and we thought that we will start a good life. On that time I had 3 children 2 daughters and a son. Life was so hard because my husband was jobless and our economy was low. My adversities start from here I sent my son to sell cigarette and one day when he went with his friend to sell cigarette he didn’t came back again he killed in a bomb explosion. I was praying that suddenly I heard a voice and I became numb and I went out and I saw my son friend that were so feared and they told me that my son had been killed in bomb explosion when I went there I couldn’t see my son because all his body was separated that was a very bad theatre for me. After 1 year my husband became sick and I spend all my money for him but unfortunately he didn’t get better and he dead after 9 months and on that time I was pregnant and after4 months I borne twin two boys but I couldn’t grow them up because I didn’t have any money and I decide to give them to a woman that she couldn’t born child and she took them and now I don’t know that where are my children? “
