Q: What's the most surprising thing you've learned about gypsies through working with them?

That the gypsies are extremely family-oriented with strong and loyal family ties.

Children are the
main focus in the parent’s lives. They want the very best for their kids and will often sacrifice to
give them just that. Extended family members are very much a part of this tight bond sharing a
strong pride in the family’s heritage.
