Life is ok except the housing. Our son is 25 years old but lives with us in this house of 16sq.m. How could he find a girldfriend and get married? We are both blind and have no expectations for our life. The house is in disrepair and we suffer from rainsorms, which always flood the furniture and friedge. We are both retired and our son doesn't have a stable job. The bak refused to provide us a loan for an apartment because of our low income.

I go sellling small articles at 6 o'clock every morning, trying to earn some money for late years, and come back at 10:30 to cook lunch. We feel helpless for our son. I always like to speak honestly, so the most we want is a larger apartment. Blind people can't live long because we can't see and have complaints inside.
