Happy birthday to you 
Country's just not safe anymore. We've got to leave. 
Into the deep dark... 
The fighting's getting closer. 
That's the hospital 
Camps have been raided 
Merry Christmas 
How are we supposed to get from there to there? 
Just take the things that you need. 
See you there. 
We've only got enough for one. 
I will find you. You ring me when you get there. 
I'm not getting on the boat without you. 
Drowned. Just turn on. Mom. 
Come on. We've got to keep going. 
Quickly. Come on. 
I want my mommy and daddy. 
No, I'm good. 
Are you related? 
No. I mean yes. 
We found a family for Alfie. He's all I've got left. 
16th of May, 2003. 
Is today Happy Birthday? I hope you made a wish. And what are your parents' names? Lilly I know this is hard.
