Khadijah is well…

The joy and excitement of her conception couldn’t be contained for the newlyweds’ lovebirds.

It’s the proof of their undying love for one another.

The birth of that precious baby girl in the wee hours of the morning got the whole family extended celebrating all week long.

That blue-eyed, pinky little girl with such great smile with such a promising future- so they thought.

The event that unfolded afterwards would shatter every ray of aspiration for the child, especially for the parents.

Why should it be us?

Why should it be Khadijah?

will she be able to lead a normal life?

Many questions, yet no answer.

Sixteen years down the line, the big hole in her heart has left a void almost impossible to fill.

Hey, it looks as if help is here

From borders least expected

Help from a strange land,

strange culture and differing beliefs

What awaits this beautiful personality behind enemy lines

Is an assurance of a wonderful future after all

Maybe she will get a second chance at life

To live her sweet sixteen fantasies.

The reality is here

That girl with a deep perforated heart is doing very well now
