From an early age it become obvious I had no emotional support. I often felt on my own and with a disability I didn’t know I had the road ahead was daunting. Where others weren’t listening, I had to listen to myself.
I was locked in my own little world. I always had my thoughts, having others around didn’t seem to matter because their input was minimal. It is hard enough being exposed to the elements, even harder when the environment we come from, seems like a continual battle ground.
But for any child their home is important. It’s the place they get to call home, therefore it’s important they are nurtured, supported and protected.
