A wooden picnic table, gold metallic butterfly wall paper, cake and ice cream, and mum, dad, brother, two younger sisters and the youngest a brother, none of which were related to me, and a gift - a cassette tape - "Pretty In Pink" sound track.

I was a citizen of this country that I left when I was 0. I had no living relatives here, and was over seven thousand miles from what I called home.

I was unemployed, no job skills, and totally broke.

I was coming up on one of the best years of my life.
