Hola, my name is M.D.A.C and I am 14 years old. I currently live at Casa Azul. Last year I was rescued by the local police after my teacher reported to the local authorities that I was living with an older man. I had always lived with my grandparents who I love so much, but one day my father wanted to take me to his house. After only a few months he told me I needed to go and live with an older man that would drive me to school on his motorcycle. This man said that he was in love with me and that he wanted me to be his wife. He took me to his home and when my teacher saw me with this man he reported it to the local authorities. When BRP came to pick me up I did not want to go. I did not understand why I was unable to be with my "husband". My time at Casa Azul was supposed to be short, but BRP petitioned to retain custody so that I could stay in their program as I did not want to leave. I love living at Casa Azul, I see my grandparents every other week and they are happy that I am living in a safe, happy and healthy home. My favorite food is pizza. I love to eat. I love to draw and color in my free time and I also love to listen to music. My dream is to become a police officer and to own my own home so that I can help my family.
