I met Fiana while visiting Chicago. She lost her parents, then her grandmother. On top of those, she made maybe the hardest choice of all: she gave her baby up for adoption.

Living on the streets off and on over the last three years, life is difficult. And it doesn’t make matters better that she suffers from depression, which prevents her from any semblance of a normal life. Depression is a reality for many people. And homelessness is never the answer for mental illness.

If you’ve felt the pain of depression, either in your own life or that of a family member, you know Fiana’s pain. Mental illness is serious and a huge cause of homelessness. I think it’s so very sad that the only solution we have for hurting people is more hurt.

What do you think?

    This is a very deep project. My boyfriend showed me this blog, because I myself am interested in starting a similar project.

    I want to focus on Ohio, and photography, not video.
    But I'm glad I found your blog, and I'll be following your progress.

    Depression is a horrible thing. I hope Fiana can get help

    Ya i do can feel the condition of Fiana that from which stage she was going through her life.A depressed person can never be happy and can never say that he/she is fine.Same was the case with Fiana.I feel pity on her.Still i think thay have got the time to get her treated.”Better late than never”.
