My sister and I had a very rough life, until we were adopted. My sister and I lived with our mom, and we still don’t know our dad. My mom had a problem with alcohol and drug abuse, which led the state to take us when we were ten. My sister and I were very frightened, when they took us from the house and placed Us in foster care. Little did we know, it would be the best change of our entire life. My sister and I lived with a wonderful Foster family. There was a mom and a dad, and we had 2 Foster sisters as well. There was always food in the refrigerator, and my sister and I could eat whenever we wanted. We always had clean clothes, and our foster family made sure that we went to school everyday. My sister and I shared a bedroom, but we had bunk beds. We had plenty of books and toys, and we were safe and comfortable. Our foster family lived in a very nice home with central heat and air conditioning. My sister and I never lived in a home with central heat and air conditioning. Until we joined the Foster family, we were living in and out of shelters. Sometimes we slept in the car, even if the outdoor temperatures were below zero. We didn’t even have a space heater on those nights. My sister and I flourished in the foster home. Eventually, our foster parents decided to adopt my sister and I. We still see our birth mom from time to time, but she doesn’t even recognize us anymore.
