well im 18 almost 19 (will be in April 2013). its been over 10 years since seeing any member of my birth family because my birth mother was a druggie and she chose drugs over 4 children. it started before i was even born because i stopped growing inside my mother because her idea of prenatal drugs were meth and coke. so i was taken two months early weighing at 4 pounds 4 ounces and 15 inches long. then after my mother gave birth to my little brother thats when her addiction escalated to being out of control so the state (DHS) didnt want us kids to suffer anymore thats when we all got placed into foster care. my security blanket which was my siblings...got ripped out of my 5 year old little hands. for a year i cried myself to sleep every night because i thought i was the reason why my family split up. i prayed and begged and pleaded with god. at the age of 6 i grew up because i knew i had to be tough in order to be successful in life. i ended up spending 5 years in foster care until i got adopted at the age of 10. i love being adopted i think my life story is unique and i wouldnt want it any other way. so after graduating high school i decided to go to college to go into child psychology so i can help kids through foster care because i know what they are going through. i never had anyone i could talk to in the 5 miserable years of foster care so i feel if i can help one kid smile and have hope then i can die happy knowing i helped someone in true need. so there is my sad sad life story. (not really if i told my whole entire story it would end up being a book so this is very watered down to what i lived) and oh yeah. i love criss angel he makes me beLIEve that there is hope and happiness everywhere i go and in every journey my life takes me.
