And some extra pictures.
That house they call "run down" is about the same as the place I lived in for 3 years, although mine was just off the Mediterranean, not up by the hills.
They'd kept her hair dyed to cover up she was blond, but even then the blue eyes would give it away. They need to go through that camp and any child that doesn't have deep brown eyes should be DNA tested for comparison to the "parents". If there's one kidnapped child, there's probably others there.
You'd think they'd have figured out taking a child with blonde hair and blue eyes might tip someone off the child was not theirs? They should check the less obvious children's DNA in the camp too, maybe find more kidnapped children. The Roma have a long history of kidnapping.
What's happening in Italy.
The practice of stealing child brides for their sons.
Happening in Ireland.
I remember when living in Greece, those who never locked their doors, did so when the "Tsigani" came to the island and set up camp. The children, maybe not even their own, but maybe their own, were often disfigured, broken arm that healed crooked, and other such to elicit more sympathy while begging. Very insistent little beggars they are too, since they are punished by the older ones if not successful at begging. Some stories I could tell about that time....
You are torn between feeling sorry for the little beggars and despising the older ones who use and abuse them, all while knowing those same children will grow up to be the same.
I do hope they find this child's real family, and hope she is still young enough to recover from what she's endured.
I wonder what DNA testing of all Roma children might reveal?
