“Before, I can’t do anything. Everything scared me and brought bad memories but now I can deal with this thing and can walk in town and my body doesn’t shake. I’m come a long, long way but your family has helped me to be like this. In all my life, no-one has ever given me what your family has given me. Not even my own family. Everyone from your family gives me love. Every single one. Now I am the person I was always meant to be.”
