At 7:15, she pulled onto Charles Street and drove out to Carroll County for the first time since enduring 55 hours in a collapsed hotel in Haiti. "Hi, everybody," Varghese, 31, said cheerfully as she walked into the New Windsor offices of IMA World Health. One by one, she hugged several co-workers amid smiles and bits of laughter. Someone clapped. Hovering over the happy reunion was a yellow balloon with a big smiley face.

BOSTON -- If all goes well this will just be a tale for Fauziya Kasinga to tell her future children. A harrowing tale of desperation and courage to match that of anyone who ever sought freedom in America. The bare outlines are the stuff of melodrama. Fauziya grew up under the protective wing of a progressive father who flaunted the conventions of his tribe in Togo. He didn't believe in polygamy or forced marriage. He was appalled by female circumcision. He educated his five daughters.Tribal nightmareBut when Fauziya was just 17, her father died and everything changed.
