For the last 15 years and counting, my yaya Vanessa has been with me in my life’s journey. We may not be connected by blood, but the bond we share with each other is like a sister. I treat her like family because she has always been good to me and have supported me through thick or thin.
This beautiful person instilled in me the value of family and sacrifice. She spent almost half of her life away from her real family just to give them the best life possible. She is truly amazing because she taught me that love entails sacrifice.
