This story was written by my daughter. On her own initiative she decided to make her writing project for her 6th grade Language Arts a story about adoption.
She graciously agreed to allow me to post it on fvbf (Faith View by Faye) to help bring awareness to the need for adoptive parents.
…FROM CHAPTER 4
“Three years later and Bella was seven years old now. Butterscotch had given birth to one perfect kitten, that looked just like her mom, but Butterscotch died soon after. Bella kept the new kitten and named her Buttercup. She and her parents buried Butterscotch in the backyard the next day and had a funeral.”
While putting Butterscotch in her grave it reminded Bella that she was very lucky to be living with Mom and Dad. Bella still remembered her birth mom who yelled at her grandma a lot and that her birth mom couldn’t take care of her. Her birth mom couldn’t feed her because she never had any money. Sometimes they ate at a friend’s house. Once her birth mom had even left her alone and she was only two months old.
Thinking of her life then made Bella feel mad and sad. Then Bella would become happy because although her life started out yucky it became lucky when the Chase’s adopted her.
Not all kids get adopted, Bella knew that from her time as a foster child. As she walked inside with her parents she wondered why there were so many kids who needed Forever Families and so few adults to adopt.
Bella felt proud that her family was going to adopt another child, a boy named Justin who was six. Still, there are lots of kids needing adopting, who would do that for them?
