When she got in contact with the team of “Seven Trees” she was expecting a baby at any minute. With broken family ties she was unable to find a place to go. She was advised to live in the Half-Way-House. After going there in December 2012 she gave birth to a little boy, Samuel, on the 28th of December.
In the house Tanya took part in the sewing workshop and also helped by doing some drives and settlements.
In October 2013 she visited her mother for a week to rebuild the relationship. After this week they decided to live together. So after 11 months, she successfully left the Halfway-House to start a life on her own together with her nearly one year old Samuel.
