Part four

That's how I ended up in the place that I'm in now, I’ve been here going on eight years, its the same place that they placed me when they confiscated me from my mother the final time. Of course for the couple of months I was depressed , I kept eating and eating and sleeping, those were the two things that helped me get over the fact that she had given us up without a fight, I guess she didn't want us anymore or maybe she just wasn't strong enough. Here is where I had a lot of my firsts, my first boyfriend, first kiss, first time, first dog, first friend, first enemy, first grandmother, fist real aunt, and my first love, these were the things that I wish she would have been around for.

I don't mean to say it like she died, but at that time she was dead to me, never around, never called and never tried. By this time I've gotten over it and realized that that's the woman who gave me life and without her there is no me. Eventually the people that I live with grew on me. Extended relationships between all of us, of course was going to happen , I mean the woman that I call grandma has custody of me, I have to stay here at least until I’m eighteen. I love this house, its great to finally have a family, that’s something that everyone wants.

Sometimes I wish that it would of worked out better for me, but then I realize that everything happens for a reason, that this is how my life was always planned out from the beginning. Most of the time some of the children that I call my cousins get on my nerves, but at the end of the day you got to love them, except this one who makes you want to pull your hair out, but at the end of the day she's type sweet. . of course I'll never tell her that, that's totally confidential. The dog, oh my goodness, the house would not be the same without the dog. You know how every family has that one special person or thing that keeps the family together, well that’s ours.

Now, I have a week and five days until my eighteenth birthday, I don't know what I'm going to do Knowing that DYFS cuts it's children off at eighteen, but I'll figure it out. Okay, in case your wondering, I have seen my mother, spent the night with her countless amounts of time at that. I also split the time between my father and my foster mother if you haven't figured that out, I'm daddy's little girl. I spent a couple of days with my sister hoping that our relationship would get better, well it did a little. On the other hand I haven’t seen my brother, I miss him a lot and I look forward to seeing him in the future.

Me, well things have definitely change, recently I've discovered my love for the arts: Writing, singing and acting. I also found a love for Canada, I have to go there one day. See my dreams have changed since I was younger, I want to be all three a singer, an actress and a writer, but I also want to go to School for Journalism in Canada. How I'm going to reach these goals, I don't know, but I'll do it one day, I guarantee it, but for now I'll just stay close to home. You know I can't be to far away from daddy or for the most part my mother, because I am my mother's daughter and without her there's no me and without her my whole life would be empty.
