hey, my name is Lorett and  im 15 for all i know, yeah i know what youre thinking "for all i know?" yes. i was adopted. my mother took one glance at me and decided she didnt want me, well me and my twin sister Alliyah we both got adopted but from two different women i got adpoted from jane she got adopted from her sister lousia so growing up we woukd just tell everyone we are cousins. anyways, im going to tell you about my life and what it was like for me growing up, theres a lot so grab you popcorn and get cofortable.
i dont know when i was born but i know i was adopted june 16 so i just say thats my birthday. i was adopted about 3 months after being born so i was told. i was given to a woman named jane she had a son named Tae and he was about 4 maybe 5 when i came into the picture. he wasnt pleased but who would be? eventually he come to love  me, his baby sister. growing up was great up untl i was 4 about to turn 5 years old. jane had another son but she was an acoholic so tae and i had to take care of this child. jane would be in on and off relationships which were cool for her until the break up's, she would ru to the liqour and drink until she passes out but because she was hurt she would let her anger out on me she would tell me in worthles and a disspointment that my mother didnt love meshe wpuld even say she hatesme because i wasnt her own, she would say some really hurtful things to me. jane would leave us a lot to go out to bars and god knows where else she would go or what she would do, tae and i were only young trying to find out how to raise a baby. we didnt have money,family or friends so tae and i would take turns watching james this little baby while the other would go to the sore and steal as much food for us as possible to feed the three of us tae would mostly make me go because he was older and he knew more about raising a baby so i would go around the corner and steal bread,milk,cheese,noodles, sandwich ham, cans of corn, dipers,wipes and anything else i could in my jackets  i would go home to james crying because he was hungry,diaper full the usual reason why babies cry. i would have to quickly make a few sandwiches for me and tae and a bottle of milk for little james. jane would come home late at night some days she wont even come home but jane starting getting tired of her broken relationships and started staying at home which i thought would be a good thing but in reality it was worse, she would drink at home non-stop me and tae would still have to raise little james and even sometimes she would watch him so me and tae could go steal from the store. a couple months go by and james starts walking, hes maybe 11 months. jane was to too drunk to realize what was happening. she started hitting me to let out her anger. she would hit me for the smallest thing, not cleaning, crying too loud, talking too loud, she would but me in a cold shower and hit me with a belt if my kindergarden teacher would call her because i was being bad. i never told anyone because i thought that would make momma mad and i didnt want momma to be mad at me so i kept quiet, so a couple years go bye i was maybe 8 nothing changed.
 i was in school when i met my best friend lilly! lilly was so nice and pretty she would always let me go to her house to play with her. one evening i wanted to go to lilly's house so after school i waited for lilly's mom to pick her up. eventually she came and i asked if i could sleep over she said yes so i went home told my momma i would be back tomorrow, i gave tae the 2 little dollars i found in the ally on my way home, i grabbed my clothes and was on my way to lilly's house. i finally got there but when i got there lilly and her mom werent home yet, her dad let me in the house he told me to ait on the couch for lilly to get back he told me i could watch tv so i watched Bratz Dolls.about 10 minutes go by and lilly still isnt home. lilly's dad called me over said he wanted to talk. i went over to him, he had some frends wih him and they were drinking. he lifted me up put me on his lap and put his hand on my leg, i could smell the beer, he had a strabge look in his eyes which made me want to get down so i tried moving off his leg but he would only put me back to where i was. his friends started laughing and he put his hands under my sleeping gown, i moved so he grabbed my leg really hard and told me to stop moving. one of his friends came behind me and put a hand around my mouth. he got a call, it was lilly and her mom he told me to be quiet she was talking about what to get for dinner and she would be home soon, she asked if i was there he replied to her "yeah, shes watching tv " lilly's mom said give her 20 minutes and she would be home.
 she hung up. lilly's dad told me if i say anything he would call my momma and tell her i was being bad and i didnt want to upset momma so i agreed. he let me go and told me to go watch tv. lilly and her momma came home so me and lilly went inside her room to play, hours go by and everything seems normal. later on that nigt i wake up to pain etween my legs, a hand around my mouth and lilly's dad behind me with his freinds on the side. he said they would take turns. as he hurt me i cried. it feels like days go by then finally they stop get up and leave, before they leave he whispers in my ear "this is our little secret. if you say anyting i would tell you momma" they left. i cried myself back to sleep
