When there were just them and Sandy and Sharrot, we would go out and have pizza but now with six more, I can’t afford it. ” And I tell them that if they feel I am treating my children in a special way it’s because they are my children. Sometimes I feel guilty … but I talk straight to them and I think they appreciate it. ‘Last holiday, Sylivia, who’s 18, came to me and said, “One of our aunties said that we’re weighing you down. ”’ Because the six additional children who have joined Sophia’s household share no blood with her, her decision to take them on was greeted with incomprehension by many.

They like to roam about. But what I try to do to keep them in order is to always make sure, even if there is very little food, that I cook for them and that we sit down and eat it together.
