Chapter Six - Two Versions of Myself

When my parents separated, they stopped taking as many photos and videos - all of the videos are with my Dad, and my Mum didn't get a camera for a while. So, for this chapter, I'll talk about my teddy bear: Tina.

Here I am with Tina, before my parents divorced I think - but that's not the point; I just want a picture of me and her together!
