A Picture and Its Story: Sold by Islamic State, Yazidi child reunited with family
His name was Ayman, but the couple who brought the boy home to their Iraqi village after buying him for $500 called him Ahmed. Islamic State militants had killed or enslaved Ayman's parents in their purge of the Yazidi minority to which he belongs, then sold the four-year-old to Umm and Abu Ahmed, who are Muslims. For the 18 months he lived with the couple, his relatives assumed he was dead, one of several thousand Yazidis who have been missing since the militants overran their homes in what the United Nations has called genocide. When Iraqi forces retook east Mosul and the surrounding area last week, they found Ayman and returned him to what is left of his family. While their reunion was full of joy, breaking the bond between Ayman and his adoptive parents brought new sorrow. REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed SEARCH "YAZIDI BOY" FOR THIS STORY.

Huang's son Yu Jie was born in 1985 and died in a car accident in 2011. In the factory where she worked, inspectors monitored women's pregnancies closely. She had an abortion after falling pregnant for a second time. Following her son's death, she adopted a girl to help overcome the sorrow and find new hope. The adoption barred her from government financial aid for parents who had lost an only child. Now retired, she lives on a pension and does part-time manual jobs to raise her adopted daughter. She urges the government to give her access to financial support. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon PICTURE 4 OF 18 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "CHINA: WHEN AN ONLY CHILD DIES" SEARCH "KIM ONE CHILD" FOR ALL IMAGES

An Afghan refugee woman, clad in a burqa, sits with her child after arriving at a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) registration centre in Kabul, Afghanistan August 26, 2015. A growing number of Afghan refugees are making the journey back from Pakistan with trepidation, as militant violence intensifies, yet feeling shunned by their adopted country as relations between the neighbours sour. The rate of returnees has more than quadrupled this year, with 137,000 refugees going back to Afghanistan since January. The number could spike further if the countries fail to agree by Dec. 31 to extend identity cards for two years and allow some 1.5 million registered refugees to stay in Pakistan. The chill in relations, amid an offensive by Taliban insurgents which Kabul blames partly on Pakistan, has put the extension in doubt, along with the future of another million unregistered Afghans.

Their case is part of a consolidated lawsuit spanning four states that is heading to the United States Supreme Court in April in a case many say could make same-sex marriage legal in all of the United States.

A woman and a child walk in front of chairs with pictures of the 43 missing trainee teachers of the Ayotzinapa teachers' training college in Tixtla, on the outskirts of Chilpancingo, in the Mexican state of Guerrero, November 23, 2014. Embattled President Enrique Pena Nieto called on Mexico's states on Friday to swiftly adopt steps to modernize the justice system as he tries to defuse mass protests over the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers. Pena Nieto is facing the deepest crisis of his presidency after the students' abduction in late September by rogue police in league with drug gang members shone a light on chronic corruption and impunity.

Zoya Lipnyagova's adopted daughter Tanya, 17, shepherds goats on a pasture near their house farm in the village of Kluchi, in Krasnoyarsk region, Siberia, August 17, 2014. Eight years ago former flight attendant Zoya Lipnyagova, her husband Gennady and their two children left Krasnoyarsk for the village to live in a 19th century wooden house and adopted seven more orphaned children some years later. In 2010, Zoya received a license of a businesswoman and 300,000 roubles ($8,251) from the state as a start-up capital to open her own business, which started with three goats at that time. The family now runs a farm with about 120 goats and gradually buys equipment for manufacturing goat cheese to sell it to grocery stores in Krasnoyarsk. Picture taken August 17, 2014.

Lu Libing's wife, Mu, poses for pictures during an interview with Reuters at their home in Ganzhou, Jiangxi province March 13, 2014. Lu knew he had only one choice as the birth of his third child approached. He couldn't afford hefty fines that would be meted out by Chinese authorities, so he put the unborn child up for adoption. On the Internet he found "A Home Where Dreams Come True", a website touted as China's biggest online adoption forum, part of an industry that has been largely unregulated for years. Demand for such websites has been fuelled by rural poverty, China's one-child policy, limiting most couples of only one child, and desperate, childless couples.

Catherine Droogan poses for a photograph while holding her adoption papers in the kitchen of her house in the Northern Ireland town of Omagh February 27, 2014. Adopted at four weeks from a convent in eastern Ireland, Droogan doesn't know who her parents were or where she was born. She is not even certain who actually named her Catherine. Lying on her kitchen table in the Northern Ireland town of Omagh is a one-page document that the state has given her about her parents, containing what's known as "non-identifying information". It took her a year to get from Ireland's health service and tells her that her father was a blue-eyed factory worker in his early 20s, and her mother was a catering assistant who liked to read and dance. There are no names or addresses. To match Insight IRELAND-ADOPTION/ REUTERS/Cathal McNaughton (NORTHERN IRELAND - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY)
