I went to live with my aunt when I was 6.
- My mom fell ill and could no longer take care of me.
My aunt didn’t think twice about taking me in as her child. Unfortunately, my mom never got better. After she passed away, my aunt became my legal guardian. I was never alone and felt so much love growing up with my cousins. After high school, I went on to college and graduated with honors. There was an international company recruiting, so I took this opportunity to work abroad and see the world. But, I always came home to my aunt’s place during the holidays to be with the rest of the family. Last year, my cousins and I bought my aunt a beautiful new home in a posh area with excellent amenities. However, 2 weeks after she moved in, my aunt called to say the AC made her sick. This was quite a surprise since we ensured the house had a new AC system. Since I was away, I called my cousin to head over to the house and see why the AC made her sick. My cousin sent me a message later in the day saying they got in touch with an HVAC expert in the area. The new AC was too powerful and caused my aunt to fall sick. They had to change the thermostat and use one my aunt could operate easily. The next time we spoke, she felt much better now that the AC unit was no longer making her sick.
