When Home is Not Home

One of the most beautiful and evocative of all words is ‘home’. Folded within it are suggestions of safety, understanding, sympathy, warmth and belonging. It is to home that we turn in our minds in desolate moments, when self-doubt and fear threaten to overwhelm us, when enemies insult us and confidence ebbs.  But, at points,… Continue reading When Home is Not Home

When I was two years old, I was left under the care of my
grandmother Jennifer” May God rest her Soul in peace “and my mother went to get
married to another person who was not my biological father. As a little girl
then, it did not occur to me that my mother had gone to start a new life
elsewhere and I had my grandmother to cater for me. After all as a child that
young, you hardly know nothing about proper setting of a modern family.
