When American troops withdrew from Afghanistan last August, the troubled nation descended into greater chaos.
Families fled the country as it quickly fell to the Taliban.
Some of the youngest refugees arrived in West Michigan where a search is underway to find them foster homes.
Afghan refugee children, ranging in age from pre-teens to 17, have been separated from their families.
A number of Afghan male foster youth in Grand Rapids are in need of “a stable, loving home,” Shereen Abunada told CNN this week.
Abunada is the director of operations for the Muslim Foster Care Association, which is partnering with Bethany Christian Services to find shelter for young refugees.
She said “They come from a lot of trauma. They come from a lot of turmoil in their home country and they really hope that here in America they can have a brighter future.”
