Ep. 116 – Barbara Marlowe and Teeba Furat Marlowe :: A Mother’s Love

Barbara Marlowe and her daughter, Teeba Furat Marlowe, joined me to share their remarkable story of love, hope and fate.  At the ripe age of almost 2, Teeba suffered severe life-threatening burns after her father’s car hit a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2003.  A July 16, 2006 newspaper story of the incident would catch the eye of Barbara Marlowe, leading her on the most emotional and awe-inspiring journey of her life.  She would bring Teeba to the U.S. exactly one year later – July 16, 2007 – and would formulate a bond with her soon-to-be-daughter, and her daughter’s Iraqi family, that is so unbelievable that you have to hear it for yourself.

You can buy their book, “A Brave Face: Two Cultures, Two Families, and the Iraqi Girl Who Bound Them Together,” on Amazon.
