My forever family

I have been in foster care since the age of 2 (I am now 14), but suddenly, at the age of 9 a family asked to have me - ME!!!!!

As a 13 year old girl, I have many feelings bubbling up inside of me. Why did my mum give up on me? what the hell did I do wrong?
Well, I was assaulted as a little girl and that messed me up big time. No one believed me, no one. until now. I didn't have a clue how to deal with it, well, because... I've never had anyone to share my feelings with. not one person. but, now I have been adopted and I am the happiest I have ever been
