First Lines Contest 2017: Double Life

Crystal E Melville January 20, 2017
First Lines Contest 2017: Double Life
"Growing up in foster care made me think that I had no one to depend on but me especially as I got older. I had to be the best, work harder than the rest, and prove to everyone that I belonged to this world, in spite of being abandoned and neglected by my parents. My foster mom was fifty years my senior and seemed so bitter and depressed that she had to come back home to take care of her aging mother, so while she took care of me for the most part, the empowerment I needed to take my lemons and make lemonade where slim to none.
