I was a minor when my guardian sold two houses I should have inherited from my mother.

I should never have been homeless, sleeping in vacant property on the ground pregnant, in tents and with other people. My kid was misplaced in foster care. Children belong with their mom at the end of day. 

My kids need to be with their mom. 

As you all know my mom already died from AIDS. She died when I was 9 years old. 

Eventually, I am going to die the same way. You never know how things are going to go with health insurance nowadays, it can get cut off any day, nobody can afford my meds. It’s $1,000 for 30 days.

At least let my kids have memories of their mom where they can say, ”Me and my mommy did this and that together.” 

I’ve been robbed of my memories with my mom.
