”I was 15 years old when I got my first child, a boy. After a year I gave birth to a daughter in the hospital of Negombo. I was married, but my husband was not very nice, he drank a lot.

He forced me to give up my daughter for adoption. She was not allowed to stay with us.

For seven months I looked after her, till she was taken away from me.

On the airport I held her for the last time and fed her. My son and I often think of her.

She will always remain in our hearts.
