I decided to write this book to share my life story with my children, an endeavour that has taken me one year to complete. I have told my story as accurately as possible. The circumstances and emotional hardships I have experienced are miserably comparable to that of many orphans around the globe. I would hope that the readers could learn about enduring circumstances and depression that I had faced during my childhood with my single mother and siblings. In some ways, someone else with the same understanding may recognize and remember my story in a different way. In other ways, the story is mine and for that I ask forgiveness. Read, learn and enjoy!
