The best gift of all! November 5, 2018
When Caroline went to her Christmas Love Pak party last year, she didn’t know her life was about to change forever. All she was thinking about was getting out of the house for a few hours.
At the time, Caroline was just 15, and she was deeply depressed. Which was no surprise, given all she was dealing with at home. Her beloved mother had passed away a few years ago, and Caroline was still grieving.
When her mom died, Caroline had to take on a lot of extra responsibility. She is now the sole care-giver for her sick auntie. They can’t afford a good doctor, so they’re not sure exactly what’s wrong. All Caroline knows is that her aunt is too weak to walk. Caroline has to help her with everything – she cooks her meals, cleans the house, even helps her aunt outside to the toilet. Can you imagine? And they only have a pit in the ground – Caroline has to help her aunt crouch down over the pit, and then pull her back up. Good thing Caroline is strong for her age!
