Fahima Suleiman, a Yazidi caretaker in northeastern Syria, sits with sleeping toddler Ibrahim, who is being separated from his mother. The boy’s father was an ISIS fighter, and his mother is being forced to leave him in Syria when she returns to Iraq. “If [the children] go with the mother, the family doesn’t accept them and the community doesn’t accept them,” says Suleiman.
