Farouk Shami is the son of Megan Hunt.


Parents' Deaths and AdoptionEdit

Farouk was orphaned at age four when his birth parents both died in combat in Syria. He ended up in Iraq as a refugee, where he met Megan Hunt, who raised him as her son for the next six years, though she was never able to adopt him legally. When she was evacuated to the US for medical treatment, he wasn't able to go with her because she couldn't get a visa for him. ("Break Down the House")

Coming to SeattleEdit

After seeing Megan's distress at not being able to be with Farouk, Nathan went to Iraq himself and had Farouk fake an illness so he could take Farouk to the US under the guise of participating in a medical trial. When he arrived, they tried to delay his entry while waiting on paperwork, but Meredith convinced them that his condition was critical enough not to wait, so he was taken to the hospital and happily reunited with his mom. ("Ain't That a Kick in the Head")

Moving to Los AngelesEdit

After she was released from the hospital, she decided to move to the beach with Farouk and Nathan. She sent Nathan and Farouk ahead to set up the house. While they worked, Farouk and Nathan bonded, agreeing that even though they didn't know what they were doing, they were prepared to muddle through together because they both love Megan. Megan later joined them and they went to the beach together and played happily. ("Danger Zone")



When his birth parents died, he was informally adopted by Megan Hunt. ("Break Down the House")
