Liliana Medina


LILIANA MEDINA: 13 YEARS OLD AND A MOTHER.

I went to take some things to his house but no one was there except him.
He grabbed me into his room and locked the door.
I started to scream but no one could hear me, 'cause no one was there.
I still don't know what happened.

He is a neighbour, 19 years old; he has another woman who gave birth in December.
He has disappeared.
I found out about my pregnancy already 6 months into it.
He said he would hurt me if I spoke, so I didn't tell anyone.

I am in grade 4 and I used to like to play with dolls. I have given them all away, now I have a son.
