I was on the verge of being put into the system. This happened because my mother was leaving my brothers, sister, and me in the house from 9:30 PM to 3:30 AM. My grandparents saw what was happening and decided to do something about it. My grandparents called DHS and took custody over us, so that meant more trouble.
My little brother tried to run away; my sister caused two fights among the family; and, as for me, I am not truly loved by my grandparents. They believe I talk too much and have too much to say. My sister was threatened by my mother with a kitchen knife. My family doesnít show any love for one another.
My grandparents expect to receive respect from my brothers and sister. Yet they spoil them with everything they ask for and treat me like an outcast. Itís hard trying to be a family member to hateful people.
