Maria Isabel Blancas Gonzalez holds her 16-year-old daughter's teddy bear, as she waits to be reunited with her, outside The Great Family group home, in Zamora, Michoacan State, Mexico, Wednesday, July 16, 2014. Blancas said she had only been permitted to see her daughter once every four months, and that her daughter told her she had been hit and had signs of physical abuse. Mexican prosecutors said Wednesday that victims told harrowing tales of sexual abuse, beatings, hunger and filth, in a once well-regarded group home where authorities freed hundreds of adults and children in a raid.
