[ READ EPUB ] ♖ BORN DIFFERENT: Iraqi Female Survivor Among Traditions, Religion and War ☣ I was born in , in between two wars four years after the beginning of the Iraq Iran War, which lasted seven years and ten months, and six years before Iraq s invasion of Kuwait to a very poor family in the worst neighborhood of Baghdad, Iraq I was born to an unloving, emotionally cold mother and an alcoholic father, and yet here I am now, a mother myself, and I could not love my daughterThey named me Wafaa, which means loyalty, but I have never known what loyalty was in my life The family I grew up in did not provide me with a refuge or a safe place they were like strangers to me I have seen too much hypocrisy in how they practiced their religion My voice was muted for many years, but my hope and ambitions were louder I was always seeking my mother s affection and love, but I was never seen or heard rather, I was abused and wounded I live everyday with what I have been through, but I believe there is a reason God wanted me to be born and to suffer There is a hadith saying of the Prophet Muhammad in Islam When God loves a people, he will test them Maybe he was testing me or testing my strength
