Sunshine


They asked me to abandon her, they said that she was the devil's child. Some cursed and some pitied my state. My husband had left me some months ago and now my daughter was born with no limbs. It did not matter to me, as I had already lived with her for nine months. She was my sunshine, my only reason to survive.
