100WW — Reunited

C27256EC-FD65-4C84-AEAE-BE64CA6AB454The officers had taken away Camila’s daughter, Sofia, at the detention center. She asked the officials about her daughter, but they were no help.

        And that’s going to be one very unhappy little girl who has to recover from not having her mother (at least) and so cruelly not even being allowed her teddy bear. But it was a sign to the mother that she was headed in the right direction.
