Sometimes all you need to do is recognize the sign you’ve been looking for all along.

Ten years back I met a little boy sitting quietly in the last seat of a bus, clutching his tiny car toy, legs pulled up to his chest; for reasons unknown, those little wandering eyes gave rise to an urge inside me to start a conversation; I asked him what he was doing all alone, to which he replied, ‘they say nobody wants to adopt me…so I’ve set out to find someone who would…,’ a sudden rush of tears flooded his chubby red cheeks.

I flashed back to the days when I was his age – lost and depressed, craving for parental love and attention; apart from cursing life and hating myself, I’d done nothing more with my life; ‘I will,’ I uttered; those twinkling eyes were everything I’d been seeking all along.

    1. Don’t worry. You will slowly get the hang of it. There’s a lot of free themes available on wordpress, which you can use to design your website. And when it comes to adding pictures to your stories, I would suggest that you get them from Google images. No matter what you write, it’s always good to add a featured image. Best of luck😊😊
