My dad separated from my mom because my older brother was born with cerebral palsy and after sometime he left the family. He has disappeared and no one knows his whereabouts. My mom has no other relatives who can help care for me while she works. It is difficult for her to find permanent work because she needs to care for my brother. She recently became pregnant with my younger brother because of the extreme desperation she is in. I am thankful to no longer be a burden for her since I can live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am in 1st grade (Class 1) because I have not been in school consistently.
