Excerpt: The longest day was when the time came for me to leave and move in with my new family. I was scared and remember crying but to no avail. I ran as far and as fast as I could to get away from those mean people, and I didn’t want to go. My foster parents finally coaxed me back, and I remember holding on to a leg and not letting go. Finally I was hoisted up on my foster dad’s shoulders and enjoyed my ride. It wasn’t until he put me in the backseat of the car that I cried hard and just closed my eyes, hoping I would disappear.
