Claudia lives in the neighborhood by Castel Pere. She lives in one room of a three roomed house with her six family members. In this picture the constant sadness is masked by my sunglasses. Even without the sunglasses, Claudia is good at hiding her sorrow through her smile and hugs. Like a lot of our children, even though on the surface they appear happy, they have seen and experiences more than their little lives should ever endure.
Portia's blog has a beautiful picture of Claudia.
