My dad died from an unsuccessful stomach operation when I was 1 year old.  When this happened, his family kicked my mom out of their family.  My brother, sister and I stayed with them but they neglected us. We did not have food or proper clothes. Then my maternal grandmother finally intervened. While she has no way to support us, she loves us. My aunt was able to care for my sister while my brother and I lived with my grandmother. However, we still were not able to have our needs met. I am thankful that Alex and I were able to come together to live at
Kaptagat Children’s Home.  I am in 7th grade (Class 7).
