She Fought it and she made it! Despite the odds...

Azita Khatami moved to the states with the hopes of creating a better future for her two boys, unaware that her own life would be transformed the most.


Azita was a stay-at-home mother in Iran and the states. With her husband taking full responsibility for outside work, she took it upon herself to create a nurturing environment for her family at home. Even after migration, they tried to separate their responsibilities; her husband worked in Iran and provided for his family. She lived in the states with their boys and made sure their transition to the new environment was as smooth as possible until a distant cousin appeared at her door one evening.


That's when she heard the news.

The news changed her life!

On May 11th, 2013, she lost her husband in a car accident back in Iran, leaving her and the boys alone.
