Cris ... I cried. This story was, well ... it was beautiful!
My parents began taking in foster kids when I was
fourteen. My house went from a quiet, two-parent,
plus two kids abode to a home teeming with life and
beautiful, emotional insanity. I have two sisters—that
mean the world to me—who were adopted through the
system. I have another sister who we claim, much as
the Cullens claimed Bella without adoption. We are the
oldest girls, she's just a month older than I, and I can't
imagine life without them.
There are also two foster brothers that stayed until
they turned 18, but did not choose to remain close to
the family ... which stings sometimes, but I know it is
awkward for them, as they both remained in contact
with their bio-siblings and cousins while 'in care.'
The emotions you wrote were so spot-on. Many can't
fathom the idea of NOT wishing ill on an abuser, but I
get it. The bond and need are inborn to a child. They
genuinely NEED the approval and affection of their
parents. It breaks my heart to see the many diverse
ways that the lack of that love effects a child.
Thank you for being brave enough to write this. It
does not take a psychologist to see how deeply
personal this story was for you, and I commend you
for sharing it. It is powerful, and lovely.
*eagerly anticipating the next chapter of Wisp*

I almost don't want to click 'next,' because
after I do, this will truly be over. It's been an
agonizingly AMAZING journey!

Oh, you HAVE to divulge Emmett's comments! LOL

Parting jab, indeed.
I'm not sad he's dead, but I am
sad that he managed to touch
her. Asshole got his paws on
her one last time.

Is baby-girl born next chapter?

Sorry. Pulling a gun on an unarmed person ...
a person who poses NO threat, and then firing
said gun is attempted murder, and assault with
a deadly weapon. Charlie not only loses his
position, but freedom. There were too many
witnesses, and there IS no defense for his

No. Bella ... you foolish, self -reliant girl! :(
