A year of struggle as an Afghan family builds a new life in California

The Mohammadi family, Najib holding Yusuf, Yasar, Susan and Zahra, sit together in their living room, at their home in Sacramento, California, August 1, 2022. Najib Mohammadi had high hopes for his life in the United States when he, his pregnant wife Susan and two small children left Afghanistan in July 2021. But for most of the past year, the family has lived in a cockroach-infested, one-bedroom apartment in Sacramento unable to find affordable housing in California's capital. The former interpreter for the U.S. military arrived under the Special Immigrant Visa program, just two weeks before tens of thousands of his fellow Afghans were evacuated when Kabul fell to the Taliban.   REUTERS/Brittany Hosea-Small

Zahra Mohammadi, 3, cries as she looks out the front door after her father, Najib Mohammadi, left to run errands, in Sacramento, California, June 7, 2022. Zahra's parents have discussed enrolling her in preschool, but her mother, Susan, is worried her English is not yet strong enough to communicate her needs to teachers. She has picked up some English from cartoons, and she has started responding with "OK!" and two thumbs up when her parents speak to her in Dari, one of the official languages of Afghanistan.
