I live with a family that since I was little, has taken care of me. The whereabouts of my parents are unknown. My adoptive father is Carlos Forero Vanegas, and he is 53 years old. My adoptive mother is Maria Custodia Parra, and she is 45 years old. I like to eat rice and chicken, although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church, and I am not in school yet.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
The house where I live has one bedroom and one bathroom. The floor is the ground, the walls are made of wood, and the roof is made of metal sheets. It is located in the “Altos de la Florida” neighborhood in Soacha. We have electricity and gas, but there is no sewer system. Water arrives twice per week, and we have to collect it in containers to use it for cooking, bathing, and drinking. The weather is cold and the streets are unpaved.
