The girls of Casa Shalom, although they come
from difficult backgrounds, are just like girls in the United States. They love pop music and have covered their walls with magazine pictures. They love new clothes and on the rare occasions they get to go shopping, they are in heaven! They paint their nails, push the limits and are fiercely loyal to each other - until someone borrows shoes without asking! In this photo, Karen, Maria, Colim and Ada show off their room.
