we find out that my father got killed in Somalia, which is why he didn’t get back to us. I reunite with my elder siblings over a decade later. My mother is still brave and a fighter. I have two more beautiful siblings. we are all fatherless children. but we have a fighter for a mother alhamdulillah. I met mama Dunia and her daughters two decades later. We got separated again due to our refuge status. We lost in touch with mama Aaliyah five years later after our return back to Somalia. We reunite with my uncle AbdiFitah he lives now in the UK with a family of his own. Mother and he has a bond like no other.
Life is full of tribulations.
we are survivors who insist on living.
