Every morning in Ankawa, Iraq, as her 4-year old son Luis prepares to leave for preschool, Raeda Firas takes a stick of oil and makes the sign of the cross on his forehead. As a photographer documented their morning ritual on April 7, 2016, Luis grabbed the stick and marked a cross on his mother's forehead, also blessing her. <br />

The Christian family was displaced from Mosul by ISIS in 2014, and live in a church-provided modular home.
