Both of Bernard's parents are alive. His father is a welder in Adam Nana.
His parents were renting a place and unfortunately were evicted. They were forced to lodge with a friend. Because living conditions were going to be crowded the parents brought Bernard to stay at the orphanage. He lived at the orphanage for a year.
The parents have found another home. It is small but they are doing their best. Bernard attends school and spends most of his days here. He goes home to sleep.
