My family and I immigrated to the United States in the late 80's. We came through the assistance of the UNHCR, as Iranian refugees fleeing political persecution. A few years after our arrival, our family adopted Asieh Rakhshani, the daughter of close family friends. Prior to her adoption, Asieh and her parents resided in Camp Ashraf, Iraq as members of the Iranian resistance group PMOI (Peoples Mojahedin of Iran). During the outbreak of the Gulf War, Asieh’s parents wanted her out of harms way. It is difficult to articulate the hardship that Asieh experienced by leaving her parents and moving to a foreign country. Our family of six lived in a two bedroom house in Sacramento- we didn't have much, but we had each other.
