Mother. To utter the word is a prayer. I owe my
strength and faith to her caring love.
My whole life is a great dreaming love, happiness,
a fight, darkness in which a beam of light has appeared:
the power of faith and love a child feels when holding
its mother`s hand.
Valika, I thank you for the touch of your hand.
I am grateful for the trust of those who opened their
hearts and faced my camera.
May the Lord God have mercy on us.
