Real moms and dads
by: Darlene Barriere

Just like you, Hannah, I think of "real parents" as the ones who take care of you and love you and protect you.

Thank goodness someone stepped up to protect you and stopped the abuse you were dealing with. Thank goodness for adoptive "real" parents.

Real or not
by: Steph

Whether you have "real" parents isn't the issue. Were your adoptive parents good to you? Parenting is a role, not only a genetic or blood thing. Good that you were removed for your protection.

More details
by: Hannah

When I was little, my mom used to drink. She was the slutty type. It seemed that every night she brought a different man home with her. They would hurt me and my sister, some even threatened us.

I remember one night, one of them hit me and threw me down on the ground; and I mean literally threw me. The neighbors overheard the noise and called DHS. They finally came and took me and my sister to live with this really nice couple. They are now my adopted mother and father, so now I know that I am safe.
