become as a child

we took almost a thousand pictures, each of them has a story. though we won't be able to, we feel responsible to try to portray the spirit, feeling and emotion of each of the stories. some are so special, they deserve their own post. for now, here are pictures of some of the kids that completely stole our hearts. and despite the absolute tragedy that they've lived through, they still have smiles on their faces.
