Naji, 9, returns home from school to the orders of his mother, Samia Faido, as father Ghassan Faido, 40, tends to his 22-month-old daughter, Tala, at a refugee camp in Yayladagi. Two years ago, Samia Faido was seven months pregnant and terrified as she ran from her Syrian village just before the government bulldozed her home and torched her family's apple and olives trees. Since then, she and her family -- among the first residents of Turkey's first refugee camp -- have settled into a life that is starting to feel alarmingly permanent. "When I first came here, I thought I was going to be here for maybe a month," said Faido, 30. "Every night I go to sleep hoping that we will wake up to good news in Syria, but it's always just more bombing and shelling."
