I do not know my father.  My mom was not married. I have one older brother and one older sister.  When my mom passed away we were left to live with her extended family.  A short time later they abandoned me.  I had no one to take care of me. Different people in the community tried to help out and let me stay with them but no place was permanently home. When I was five years old I found my home at Mahiga Children’s home. I have finished high school. Now I am in my third year of trade school studying plumbing. I never dreamed this would have been possible.
