My sense of self-worth plummeted.
No one was there to defend me.
I was targeted for relentless beatings.
I swore I would never look back.
She was alone again, and felt it.
It felt like I was thrown to the wolves.
I feel like a lost soul.
The child welfare system worked for me.
I wish I knew my baby brother.
I lived in 12 placements while in foster care.
