When Sapna A. left her home early that cold morning, she knew she was not coming back again. All she could tuck into her small bag was some documents, her ID, and the little money she had saved from her work as a teacher. Only her sister knew where Sapna was headed.

“When the plane took off from Kabul, everybody was clapping and cheering except for me. I covered my face with both hands and sobbed.
