‘I’m not afraid anymore.’
I do everything for my children – anything I can.
I’m quite an anxious mother, and a caring one. I've been married for 17 years, and I have four children.
I have a 15-year-old daughter who ran away from home. In 2014, two of my children were diagnosed with psychiatric problems. My boy needed better company, someone to help him study.
I love all four of my children. All these problems they're having? I hope they can recover and sort themselves out. I want them to have a better future. And a better childhood than the one I had.
Somebody recommended an organization to me. I visit three or four times a week, and I receive counseling once a month. They also help a little with the groceries.
It's thanks to them I was able to move forward. First they listened carefully to my situation, then helped me figure out my options. Their counseling and support has helped me accomplish things I never thought possible. L’Albero della Vita has helped me change. I'm not afraid anymore.
And I'm filled with hope that my life will only get better.
