    Child abandonment in Central America.


    In the excerpt from Enrique's journey, it can be seen that Enrique was left by his mother at just five years. This is child abandonment.

    The second excerpt speaks clearly that children from Central America have been making the journey often without their parents. Another case of child abandonment. The common theme here is children without their parents. This is what both excerpts have in common.
