Alone with boys in their cottages

I was told that it would be much better if the director or some of his assistants would show me around and be present during my interviews. Eventually, however, I succeeded in going from cottage to cottage and seeing some boys alone. I told them frankly who I was and finally asked each child, "Supposing I could give you what you want the most, what would you choose?" There was only one answer: "I want to go home."
