My mom was the first wife. My father loved his second wife more than my mother. My mom continued to encourage us that we must love our dad.
After a short period of time, my mom left her marriage and went searching for a job in order to provide for us.
The other wife took care of us, but we were used as the workers in that family. We prayed to God to change the situation. I thank God that the situation eventually changed, and God answered our prayers.
“We love the things we love for what they are.”

Thank you so much for purchasing this book. The proceeds from this book goes to help all the women who have written in the book.
You will find out from their stories that these women are extremely poor. Many of them are widows and many children are orphans.
There is a lack of food and water for these people. Some still live in grass huts that cave in once the grass rots. Children drop out of school because they lack uniforms, socks, or shoes, and the school fees are not paid.
Some families have resorted to eating tree leaves and roots as they can’t buy any food, and they are having trouble growing food due to their lack of rain and resources.
As you read their stories, you will find that although they are dealing with unimaginable difficulties and heartbreak, they do what they can to stay positive and support their families.
