My roomate, Patrick van Rosendaal poses for a portrait outside our apartment in Manhattan.
Abeir and Beida pose for a portrait with Abeir's two sons on the roof of their Bronx apartment. After both their husbands were killed by the Taliban in Iraq, they started receiving death threats and came to New York under refugee status.
For security reasons, they asked that their identity not be revealed in this photo.
