In my home

What is a home?

It’s a place where families connect.

Where memories are made.

It has many rooms I feel safe in.

It’s a shelter where I am taken care of by parents who love me and my siblings more than anything else.

I can appreciate my environment and care for it as long as I live in a place that’s safe.

In a room called a living room where I can play toys to my hearts content.

When my family is around, I play out front with my Dad either playing hockey or baseball we always have fun.

I have a room where I can handle my emotions called my bedroom.

I have a backyard where I can let my imagination fly.

Everyone deserves a home.

That’s a home!
