I am Nelson and I have a child who just turned one yesterday. This virus will be unforgettable as my son will grow up without experiencing his 1st birthday party here on earth. At some point, I am happy that my family and I are safe. We are too worried to go out and have our not-so-little bean get sick so we have been just staying home for almost 2 months now.

It is kind of sad though that both I and my wife got laid off. As a real estate agent, no one is looking for new places, especially since I work in areas with many confirmed cases. My wife and I have some funds but if this continues, we don’t know where or how else to get our essential needs. It is heartbreaking for a father like me not to provide needs of his family.

I wish this will be over soon and we can continue to live. My heart goes out to the families who have lost someone or have someone who caught the virus. Stay strong and please stay safe. This virus can kill anyone, at any age. I know how important it is to work and provide for your family but it’s more important to be alive and be there for your family.
