Bhutanese FlagOur first family is from Bhutan. They consist of Father age 24. Mother age 22, and Daughter age 5. The Father was 7yrs old when his family left Bhutan. The wife was just a baby when her family fled. They met and married in Nepal. Their plane ride from Nepal to Newark to Chicago and finally Phoenix was scary. The Father thought the plane would burst and they would never make it to the US. The food on the plane was not good it was too sweet.

Iraqi FlagOur second family is from Iraq. Consisting of two sisters age 41 and 34. The older sister worked as a teacher for $1.00 a month. The sisters went to the office of general education to collect their pay and because their heads was not covered they was threatened. They have two other sisters one in Lebanon who husband was recently killed. They get real emotional when they speak of their sisters. The sisters also do hair so would like any hair items. These are two lovely ladies and the perfect host they made us pastry and coffee.

Iraqi FlagOur third family is also from Iraq. Consisting of two brothers, ages 26 and 21. The 26-year-old did all the talking. He is very hyper and talkative. We were not able to get him to sit and tell us his story. You will probably have better luck on delivery day. He has 2 plants in his apartment that he is very proud of. His mother is still in Iraq and he really wants her here.
