Abandoned Child

It was in 1994 when my aunt passed away and left a child of 4 months. Some one decided to take care for that child, but after a few months this person decided to abandon the child. I decided to take care of the child who was very sick and mulnourished. I tried all the best to see the child healed and live again. I took the child to the hopsital for medication and to know more of the casue of the weak child. Fortunately, I got the solution, stayed with child, helped him in medication and everything that he needed for his health. With his education but finsihed class eight. My happiness is when I see that boy fine , well and going good.
