My Life

Written by: Lucilla Carrillo

When I was born, I had a mother. I had a father too. Early one morning - still being dark I saw my father leave. I ran after him and begged him not to go. I was only three years old. He didn't listen and left me standing there alone. My mother stayed for a while, but later she left too. To grow up without a father is sad, but to grow up without a mother can be really bad, especially when you know that the people that are raising you are not your real parents. We all grew up with different people. My sisters and I were given away. Being the oldest of the girls, I did a search to find them all. I found one sister first, then we both searched for the mother that gave us birth. We soon found her, she seemed sad. A second family she did have. I had a brother that was older then me, but now I had four more brothers. Two more sisters we would find. There was one that we could not find, until Dec. of 2007, we finally met. I am happy that we all met, at least we know where we came from. We see each other on and off. There are no regrets or grudges to hold, cause who am I to judge. I am no judge nor jury. There is a God that will judge us all and and he will give us what we deserve...
