I do not know my father. My mother abandoned me when she disappeared to an unknown location. My older brother and I were left with our grandmother. She does casual jobs like washing clothes and selling vegetables. My uncle is in trade school and also depends upon my grandmother. We rent a single room. My uncle and brother sleep on chairs. I was sleeping in the bed with my grandmother. When the social worker did a home visit and realized the conditions of my home life, I was grateful to be offered a chance to live at the children’s home. I am in 4th grade.
