2019-09-30 10:42:52They should stop separating families because a child is old enough to be on their own and there shouldn’t be a rule saying domestic partners can’t be in the same shelter sleeping in the same bed. My boyfriend doesn’t like being alone and my father is disabled. They both need me and we need shelter but no one is willing to take us all.
