In early 2007, a young widowed mother of two was just settling into a bigger home after living for several years in a cramped apartment with her extended family.
Aset Magomadova was looking forward to spring because she finally had a backyard and was going to plant a garden.
The family came to Calgary as refugees from war-torn Chechnya where they experienced imprisonment, homelessness, severe injuries and loss.
Arriving in Canada brought new hope. This was the place her dreams were supposed to come true.
But on a cold snowy day in February 2007, all those plans came to an abrupt end.
