My dad is an alcoholic and abusive. My mom disserted us after he continually threatened to kill her and burned up all of our bedding and clothes. I haven’t seen her since she left and no one knows where she is at now. My aunt took me in after mom left because my dad was not safe. However, at their home, I was forced to work instead of attending school. I had to do all of the house chores as well as look for work that paid. Any money I earned was given to my aunt. I am very thankful to have been
rescued to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home. I am in 4th grade in school now.
