I am Martina, I am 12. At 5 five I was told I could no longer live with my parents. I was taken to a Hospice where I live now. They treat me well here, but I am lonely and wonder why my parents don't do anything to take me out of here. For the last year I've been visiting a "supporting family". They take me out and even on holidays. I feel special and loved when I am with them. I wish many other children living in Hospices like me could also have a "supporting family".
