China. Province of Henan. Village Nan Laoguanzui. A young  child runs down the stairs. The boy was kidnapped in the village of Shifeng in Shaanxi province on may 12 2002, sold to a family in the village of Nan Laoguanzui. The police found him and brought him back to his family on march 4 2004. The family has then decided, because of the poverty they live in, to resell his child to the family which already bought him (from the thieves) and with whom he lived happy for almost two years. The boy plays in the courtyard of his new house. © 2004 Didier Ruef
