Sam's Story
Hi I am Sam. I was brought up by my grandmother, as I was separated from my parents as an infant. Today, I am a mother, and through this journey of life there wasn’t a single day that I forgot my mom. Nothing filled the emptiness. I want you to read my story because I want people to know that you as an individual can create your life and change the patterns you learnt as a child in order to be self-reliant.
