Our life was normal.
When the Taliban arrived, I was not able to study anymore because they targeted the schools and universities. Everyone was so worried, especially the women because the Taliban said they would take them for wives, especially the younger girls. I was shocked. I fled to the airport with my husband. The day at the airport was so hard for me because I was pregnant. Due to a gynaecological problem that had happened to me beforehand, I was unable to stand up for long, plus the weather was so hot and I had finished all my water.
I don’t know if it was the Taliban or the American Forces that threw the grenades that day but many were wounded. We waited there from the morning until night but we still could not get inside the airport so we had to go home again.
A few days later, the officer drove us to the airport by car arranged by Ascend.
The Long Wait
When I arrived in Abu Dhabi, my mental and physical condition was not good. The officer took me straight to the hospital. At the time I didn’t know if my child was alive or dead. The doctor did lots of examinations and I was there for a few nights.
After a few days, I began to feel better.
We waited there for 70 days. It was very stressful.
Looking to the Future
Right now, I am very happy and satisfied with my life. The people around me are very kind and lovely. I want to continue my education when I am registered with the government. I have everything I want right now and I’m veryhopeful about a bright future. My baby boy will be born in February. I can’t wait.
