Your story is still being read, as this review and the other more recent cries for an update show.
I sincerely hope that you are well and have not lost interest in the HP-Universe or this story, because it would be a shame if you wouldn't continue and eventually finish this story:
Despite you not being a native English speaker (me, too, by the way) is your writing style good enough to enable a passable reading flow.
But what I really love about this story is:
(1) you take your time to give us readers insight into the background, the thought processes and feelings of the characters which gives your story a depth that I miss in many other stories (where the focus is more on action)
(2) you took what was (not) known about Snape after GoF and built your own radically different background for him without taking away characteristic behavior (such as his sarcasm or his way to speak)
(3) and last but not least there is your portrayal of Harry, who is very hurt in body and spirit, and who has quite a road to go to recovery, but who also shows signs of above-average power.
To sum it up: This story has all the ingredients that make up a (potentially) excellent story, which could be a jewel in its genre: relatively good English; focus on characters (not on action) and slow development of relationships; a creative take on Snape's background without making him unrecognizable; an abused Harry, who gets someone to take care of him, and who shows promise of becoming quite powerful.
So, in the hope that you have not abandoned this story and that you will continue, I have put this on Story-Alert. Please, make my day with an update.
With best wishes,

I was wounding why you used Nans names interchangeably with each other. Surely when speaking from Severus's percpetvie it would be better to just stick to the one name. I was just bring it up beacuse I was very confused the first two times the second name was mention (especially since you had already referred to Nan before saying the Mathilda).

This is a great story - so far anyway. Unfortunately it looks like we will never see the end since you haven't updated in years. A real shame...
