The Story of Josephine Adibo

Josephine AdiboI am the third born in a polygamous family of seven. I have been blessed to be born in a family of very strong bonds in the North Eastern part of Uganda. I have a step mother who lives with my mum but the bonds we have for each other as a family make this reality completely invisible. It is one of those areas as family we always giggle about. Everyone who comes to our family thinks my step mother is our eldest sister. My step mum and my mum enjoy laughing at this fact.
