By: Donya Al-Nahi, Eugene Costello
In March 2003, Donya al-Nahi's worst nightmare came true when her Iraqi husband took their daughter and youngest son and fled to the Middle East. Donya immediately begged and borrowed whatever funds she could and flew there to begin the hunt. But the search came to nothing, and she was forced to return home without her two missing children.
A further trip with a private detective also proved fruitless, and Donya's hopes began to fade. As the fighting in Iraq continued and Saddam Hussein's regime was overthrown, she received news that her husband had returned to his home town of Najaf with the children. She knew she had no choice but to follow - and nothing would stand in her way this time.
"No One Takes My Children" is the gripping account of Donya's heroic quest. It is a dramatic, emotional and ultimately inspiring story of how one woman's determination and courage in the face of extremely daunting odds brought about the reunion of her family.
