Esther

I do not know my father. My mom passed away in 2018 from AIDS. My sister and I were left under the care of our aunt. However she is also sick and cannot work. We would often go for days without eating. I started school late and have not been able to go consistently as I was often home caring for my mom and little sister. Recently my aunt abandoned us and went to an unknown place. It seems that she could not cope with the idea of watching us starve to death. We were left alone until someone notified the children’s home of our situation. I am safe and thankful. I am in 4th grade.
