My dad died the year I was born from an unsuccessful stomach operation. When this happened, his family kicked my mom out of their family.  My brother, sister and I stayed with them but they neglected us.  We did not have food or proper clothes. Then my maternal grandmother finally intervened. While she has no way to support us, she loves us. However, we still were not able to have our needs met. My mom cannot provide for us because she is sick. I am thankful that Shadrack and I came together to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home. I am in 6th grade (Class 6).
