I remember the day I came out of the homes
It wasn’t a nice feeling because I’d spent most of my years there, I grew up there
I remember when my social worker told me I have a family

I remember when my aunt came to fetch me from Malvern Child and Youth Care Centre, 11 Constance Lane
I was filled with joy and tears at the same time

I remember my friends were crying and waving goodbye
I remember my little sister and brother hugging and not letting go of me
I remember my house mother telling me to remember her and her teachings
She taught me so much
I remember the homes
