> Iman's real parents are still missing. He now lives with his uncle and grandparents. Who say they have mixed feelings towards the couple who looked after him.
They adopted him from an orphanage where militants sold children. They paid $500.>> We have been married for a long time, and we don't have children. So I wanted to raise a child, and especially a child in his situation. A Yazidi boy, a tragic situation. I wanted to ease his suffering.
>> But the suffering is now theirs. A boy they loved and protected, replaced by memories and loss.>> Since the day he left, I have been crying, even at night.>>
And then again, on his way to meet his real family, asking if his adoptive father can come too.>>
>> They supported Islamic State but they did raised him well. They raised him according to the Quran. And they kept them away from audacious militant teachings.>> Iman says he was happy with his adoptive parents. But that he's also happy now. His innocence, perhaps not lost yet.
