My entire life I have wanted to write a novel. When I was around nine years old I started writing in a journal everyday. I had a lot of feelings about what was going on in my life but no outlet for those feelings so my therapist at the time told me to write them down, so I did. It was so therapeutic for me. I could write whatever I wanted, knowing that I didn't have to show anyone.

Writing in my journal quickly escalated to writing poems. I started writing poems after my grandfather passed away from lung cancer when I was fourteen. I have three full journals of poetry! I stopped writing in my journal when I was twenty one, after I met my now husband, I didn't need that outlet anymore, but I wanted to start writing my novel. I had no idea what I wanted my novel to be about, I thought about it for years until one day I was driving to work and I heard a voice in my head say, "Write your story, they will read it." The thought had never crossed my mind to write about my story, but the more I thought about it the more I knew it was what I had to do.

My entire life has been filled will every emotion from the day I was born: Pain, anger, regret... I've had so much happen in so little time in my life. I had to grow up so fast. This book helped get all the anger and embarrassment I had been holding in since I was a little girl. As I wrote my story it's like it left me and is now on these pages, and I can finally move on with my life. I know my story is similar to other foster children and I've had so many people approach me after reading my book to tell me they were abused as well. I want you to know you are not alone and it's important to talk about what happened, so you can heal and move on like I did. I found my solace in writing this book and I hope that you find your solace after reading it.
