About the Photography & Quotations

All the children in the photographs on this website are of actual children in OSF programs. Most were taken in September 2009 at Orfanato Ninos de Cristo. The quotations are also primarily from this program, though they have been translated and modified slightly for grammar and syntax, and some were difficult to correctly attribute. We tried to be as accurate as possible when matching the photographs, quotations, and children”s names.
