Overdue Hugs

The every day dilemma of leaving or staying for me wasn't tough any more; my family didn't granted visas and my single entry visa was expired 4 years ago. I decided to leave the US and my friend asked me to take something back to Iran, an "Overdue Hug". In the past 7 years she couldn't go back home to continue her education and her family couldn't come to the states. Here is the untold stories of Iranian students living in the states who have an Overdue Hug for various periods of time.
