Home sweet home
I have always wanted to be part of a family that loved me - now I am.
All my life I've dreamed of having a mum and dad that loved and cared about me. Someone who would protect me from the dangers of the world, not be the dangers.
My birth parents abused me for as long as I can remember. My father raped me for the first time when I was 4. And they sexually trafficked me by the time I was 9. This continued until April 2015 when I escaped the country
Now, aged 20, my dream has become reality. I am finally part of a normal family. Well I wouldn't call them normal because they're most definitely a crazy bunch ?. But I love them and they love me. They have accepted me as one of their own and treat me as if I was a blood relative. I couldn't be more happy.
This just shows that dreams do come true. Don't ever think that your wishing for something out of reach. Everything is possible if you really want it.
