I have 6 children and 18 grandchildren. I am a widow. I lost my husband when I was pregnant with our last born. I was traumatized at that point of my life. My children are grownups and all of them have completed university and are happily married. I naturally love children so I'm happy my grand children lives with me. They make me proud and give me joy. The children in the neighborhood also come around and play with my grandchildren and I love it so much.
