It is really important for someone who hasn’t been in care to understand children who are.
When I was growing up, and as a child, I didn’t have the best, but I don’t let it affect me now. If I feel upset or remember something from my past, I don’t let my feelings show. It’s not that I don’t have those feelings, but my past is not my future, and I have learned to move away and move on. I know I am not the smartest; however, I will graft, and if I get stuck,
I can get the help that I know will help me. Most importantly, when I was asked to do this article for Caritas Care, I agreed because it is a chance for me to let others see things from my perspective. It is a chance to understand life as a child who has been in care.
So, this is the life I have lived so far; I know what I had to do to get through it. Now, let’s see how it goes!
