Smooth sailing for refugee? Not quite

Great story about a very successful “Lost Boy of Sudan” who came to Chicago in 2001 and is about to graduate from North Dakota State University in 2012.  The story focuses on the positives, which are many, but also mentions his daughter was born the day after he left from the US. It doesn’t explain that the Lost Boys were given two choices—come alone (even if you have a family) or don’t come.  It doesn’t dwell on the fact that it has taken Onam Liduba 11 years to earn a 4 year degree. I’m not suggesting the story needs to focus on the hardships, but I am suggesting that anybody who wants the whole story would want to hear about the ups and downs of refugee life in America.
