Posted December 28, 2020 from Democratic Republic of the Congo

I'm Nahora Jeannette but people use to call me keza.im a girl and my Homeland is democratic republic of congo

When I was 5 years old both my parents dead,dad dead on march 23,then my mom dead june 21.both dead because of sickness .

I have siblings(2brothers and 3 sisters) we are 6

So After this situation of loosing parents our family took us in different places some of us are in Rwanda others stayed in democratic republic of congo

All of my siblings no one lived in same  place with another

My uncle took me when I was 8.all my life still now he become like my father,he did everything for making me happy,but for me I was always thinking about my parents and my siblings

Also uncle help me to finish my primary and highschool now u have diploma,I thank God

When I was like 14 years old I was feeling like " I miss calling the name mom"if my mom were alive,I could feel free to tell her what I need but to day I don't have anyone to tell

Also in that time I was thinking that I'm alone even God knows other not me and my family

I was feel worry to tell Uncle and his wife what I need because I was thinking that I'm not his daughter that why I don't have right to get this

Since2007 up to 2018 it was impossible to see our last born not only seeing her but also talking to her on phone(I was missing her so much ever her face it was seems like I started to forget it)

On 30 dec.2018 it's unforgettable date in my life because it's a date my old sister did a wedding and all my siblings were there

I was feeling like it's a small heaven

All of us we are alive we thank God 

And I will I can help an orphan specially girls

.there need a friend

.they need someone to talk with

.they need also family

*Stay blessed all*

Dear Keza,
Welcome to World Pulse. Thank you for sharing your story of immense loss, grief and disconnect from your family. It is good that your uncle took care of you and supported you as best as he could, although you did not fully feel like family. Which is really understandable.
I am sorry that you were all separated, and the reunion is all so beautiful that you could all be together again as a family. Thank you for highlighting the emotional needs of orphaned children. It is something that many of us are not aware of. Especially in Africa where emotional needs are often neglected and the focus is only on physical needs.

This sisterhood may not be a replacement to the family you long for, but you can always share anything and someone is always listening. I hope it will help a little and become your family online.
I pray that the peace that is in the presence of our Immanuel-God with us, shelter you and your family through 2021 :)
Sending warm sisterly hugs and sparkles!

Hello, Keza,

Welcome to World Pulse! I'm happy that a new voice from DRC is rising up!

Wow, dear, you were orphaned at such a young age. It broke my heart when you wrote you miss calling "Mama". Sending your hugs, dear. You've been through so much pain. You are such a courageous and strong woman to see beauty in your experience. You are in World Pulse now, you can call as many Mamas as you want here. Please continue to share your stories so more sisters and "Mamas" can get to know you.

Welcome again to our community of encouragers! May your 2021 be filled with love, joy, peace, grace, and abundance!
