My previous mom raised 4 dogs, my whole family. She was a really kind lady, and we were living very happily. But, mom suddenly died of subarachnoid hemorrhage, only at the age of 50. We were very sad.
Our grandpa, who was living with our mom, was 85 years old, and it was hard for him to take care of all four of us. It was a tough choice, but he decided to send my big brother and me to a foster home.
