My mother died while she was giving birth to me.  I was her fifth child and the other four all passed away while they were still infants.  My mom had a very difficult life.  After she died, my dad left me with my grandmother and abandoned me. My grandmother is not stable and her only means of survival is to sell porridge. I do not have any other relatives who can care for me and I had no where to go.  I was thankful for the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home.  I am in Nursery class (ECD).
