This is their very first time outside playing in the grass trying out the swing at home in Massachusetts in over a month , just days ago , they were one of the Palestinian American families pleading to go through the Rafah crossing and flee Gaza .

Hope was that ?

Hey , this is a nightmare that we wake up from .

They were visiting family in Northern Gaza when they awoke on October 7th to the unmistakable sounds of war airstrikes intensify at night .

As soon as the sun sets .

I think that's when everybody knows that time to start praying for the night to pass through and then , uh , be alive in the morning .

How does that affect you as a parent ?

When your number one hope in the world is to keep your child safe ?

Wondering if you're gonna be able to do that ?

To be honest when we were there .

Um It was one question .

I used to pray like every moment for God , please not take one of us .

Three of us .

It made us feel helpless .

Yousef could end up being on the news like the many other innocent Children that have died and , and that was heartbreaking for us , Wafa and a cat named Milka would entertain Yusuf as aboud waited in hours long lines for food and often dirty water .

By the time you get to the line or even want to eat bread anymore , the amount of deil that you've seen standing in lines for something as basic as bread , it eats away at you after being turned away repeatedly at the Egyptian border on November 2nd .

Finally , they received permission to cross .
