Di I became a street kid, I found myself my own employment as an apprentice Carpenter earning $18.00 a week, I met my now wife living on the streets and have been together since I was 17. Life has always been a struggle for both of us as we have never had any family support to help us out, even after we had kids, neither side were interested they had any grandchildren, apart from my grandmother, but she lived in the hills and with no public transport close by so visiting was very difficult and she had her own medical issues as well, that's where I inherited my heart problems from, sow did not want to impose too much on her.
