"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." -Helen Keller
Each one of these pics has their own story, the first is of a lil girl who's parents had died from aids, she was left to take care of her little brother, she spends her days begging instead of in school.
The second is of a family who has no home, the cot that they are sitting on is their only belonging. They move it each day to a neighbor who is willing to share cover.
The third pic is a fun example of one of one their beliefs. When they think their child is extremely beautiful and that a lot of people will be looking at them, they draw these black dots on their faces to steal away any wrongful thoughts. They are a form of protection. A lot of the babies have them, which makes sense, what parent doesn't think their child is the cutest baby they've ever seen.
The fourth is of this adorable little boy that chased me around with his food. If you look at his hand you can see the rice that he was eating. He thought it was funny because I didn't want to try it, and because I didn't want to try it he was even more driven to share it with me.
The fifth is of this beautiful grandmother. She was taking care of her 3 grandkids after their parents passed away. I desperately wanted to get her a pair of glasses that had both lenses. I offered to have them brought to her but she said she didn't need them...she just likes wearing the frames. I thought that was funny because when I was younger, I always wore glasses with no prescription because I loved the frames.
Lots more to come!
