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.

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.

Luis Delgado (R) holds son Marco as husband Antonio Ferndandez holds their daughter Olivia, at their home in Cancun February 24, 2015. The gay married couple from Spain who used a Mexican surrogate are unable to return to Spain with their new-born twins as they are unable to secure passports for their babies. The surrogate gave birth to the twins in Tabasco on January 6 but Mexico has refused to give Delgado and Fernandez passports to take the twins home. According to El Pais newspaper, the couple cannot be granted passports due to a conflict of interest. The state of Tabasco recognizes surrogate births but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not. It is illegal for couples to have babies via surrogates in Spain but if the country where the baby was born officially confirms the couple are the biological parents, then Spain will be able to register them. If not, the mother must appear in the paperwork, El Pais reported. REUTERS/Victor Ruiz Garcia (MEXICO - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY IMMIGRATION)

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.
