"I went to the clinic today and they told me that I'm expecting a baby girl. I'm so happy!" says Samah, laughing. "That means there will be four girls in the family — me and my three girls. I know that for some Egyptian families, the idea of having a family of girls can be distressing, and in some cases the father can react quite negatively. But my husband Ahmed doesn't seem to mind at all."

"We believe that what God brings is good. Most important are my health and the health of our baby."
