Growing up in care, I learned that if you love someone and want him or her better, you’re ready to do anything and fight.

When I was 21, I adopted an abandoned dog.

For me it is the most important that she is happy, and I don’t care how much money or time I am going to spend.

It is wonderful feeling to take care of someone. In return you get so much joy and fulfilled heart. If I am ready to do so much for my dog, I really can’t understand parents neglect or leave their children.
