An award-winning journalist on a quest to save two orphans of war.
Hala Jaber and her husband had spent ten years trying to conceive, only to resign themselves, finally, to a childless future. Instead of being consumed by grief, they threw themselves into their work as journalists, making the decision to go to Baghdad to report on the coming war.
Jaber's search for stories led her to two orphans at a children's hospital: Zahra and Hawra. She fought passionately to help them- ultimately even trying to adopt them-before discovering that there is more than one way to love and raise a child, and more than one way to be a mother.
