The baby his parents gave to a soldier is reunited with his grandfather


  • Little Sohail Ahmadi never left Kabul and was picked up by a local taxi driver who has been looking after him these months

  • Meanwhile, Sohail’s parents tried to locate him in the United States where they had been evacuated in August

  • After months of uncertainty, little Sohail Ahmadi’s grandparents have reunited with the baby

From Acceptance comes the story of a little afghan, whom his parents believed they saved from the Taliban by handing him over to a soldier during the August evacuations. The image of his delivery to the soldier went around the world and became a symbol. Actually the boy never left Kabul and this week he has been able to return to his grandfather.

The image shocked everyone, a baby given by his parents to the soldiers, to be evacuated after the arrival of the Taliban to power. The little boy is Sohail Ahmadi and he never really left Kabul.

A taxi driver found him at the airport and became fond of him, taking care of him like another son. While, Sohail’s parents tried to locate him in the United States, where they had been evacuated in August.

Months of uncertainty, until the grandparents, in Kabul, found the child. To the great regret of the taxi driver and his wife who have suffered with the separation. After an agreement signed between both families, the boy is now with his grandfather who hugs the taxi driver, named Safi, grateful for the care of his grandson.

A child who will not yet be able to reunite with his parents. A child who represents the drama of thousands of Afghans, of separated families, of those who have had to flee and, also, of those who have remained. Broken childhoods, half-done lives, people trapped without safe corridors to flee and save their lives.

The family is in Texas

Mirza Ali, 35 years old, Suraya, 32, and her other children, ages 17, 9, 6 and 3, were put on an evacuation flight to Qatar and then to Germany, finally landing in U.S. The family is now in Fort Bliss, Texas, with other Afghan refugees waiting to be resettled somewhere in the North American giant.
