 "Six years ago I was adopted by a woman who I now call my mother. She adopted me and my three sisters. The people in charge of us were going to separate me and my sisters from each other. My adopted mom took me and all my sisters in so none of us had to be separated from each other after my father left us. We live with my adopted mom and her two biological daughters. I am very thankful for her love and allowing us to be a part of her family. I never want to be separated from her or my sisters. We get along very well and love each other very much."
