I have lots of pets and I love them all so much they’re a part of my family. At my dad and step mom’s house I have 25 chickens, 2 rabbits and a dog. I feel safe with my dog Bosco. He protects me. At my mom’s house I have 2 hamsters, 2 guinea pigs, 1 fish, and a cat.

A house is not a home because a house is just a structure. Home is where you feel safe. A home is full of love and kindness. Usually family is there. And the best part is that home can be anywhere.

Home is Always a place to come home to even in the sadness and the sorrow, the fights and the feuds, the fights at school and the problems with your parents and siblings. After all that, there is always a place to come home to.

I have two homes and I am grateful for both of them. I have two homes because my parents are not together. I also have an extra person in my life, my step mom. And my mom has a boyfriend and I am grateful for him too.
