My parents separated when I was young and my mom disappeared. My dad is an alcoholic who never cared about his kids.  My two older brothers went to the streets to survive. One of them is still living there and the other is in a rehab program. My sister and I went to live with my
grandmother. She passed away in 2016. My sister and I were on our own. She is physically disabled and it is
difficult for her to find work to support us. I thought that I would end up on the streets as well until I was rescued to Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am so thankful. I am in 7th grade (Class 7).
