Before, I slept on an air mattress. Now I get to have a bed and somewhere comfortable to stay. We have our own backyard and our own property. We can outside whenever we like to ride our bikes and play around. I really love my mom for doing that. It means everything to me.
I help my brother do things like tie his shoes, write his name, and help him get ready for school. And I help my mommy do things, like move. We just moved. We were living in some apartments and now we live here. We have three bedrooms, but I have to share a room with him. I’m really happy that we have a house though. It doesn’t matter if I have my own room or not. I’m with my brother and I’m in a better place.
What are the basic things that people need to stay alive?
I know! Water, food, a roof, and love.
