My third birthday away from home

My name is Layth Al hamdani. I’m celebrating my 20th birthday in Copenhagen with my brother. We had a nice day together with sunshine. It was warm day, and I was happy, but at some point I was sad because I’m celebrating my third birthday away from my home and my family. I’m from Iraq, and I have some mental problems. My wishes are to be with my family, to be  together again. I’m still waiting and fighting with my brother to have a normal life. We haven’t had a normal life the last three and a half years. I really like Denmark; especially Copenhagen. I didn’t  get a cake for my birthday, but I’m still happy because I’ve still received congratulations from my family and friends. My second wish is to have a normal life with a house and going to school to learn the language.
