Chapter 2

When I first got to the orphanage, I felt very lonely and scared. It seemed like no one loved me. And then I met Annie. She made my life at the orphanage so much better and from the moment I met her, I already loved her as an older sister. I still somehow remember the day I arrived at the orphange. I had woken up that morning to find out my parents were dead. No explanation why, all I knew was that they were dead. Everybody was welcoming to me that first day at the orphanage, but I missed my parents so much. Annie was the nicest to me, she made sure that I felt as comfortable as I possibly could and looked out for me. I was so exdcited when Mr. Warbucks and Mrs. Farrell adopted me.

"Woah," I said, looking up at the mansion when I first arrived. The house was so big!

Annie looked at me. "The inside is much better,"

She led me inside. She was right, the house was so big! Mrs. Farrell came up to us and showed me around the mansion. It was very big and it was hard to find my way around. Annie helped me, though. She was the best big sister I could ever ask for. I got used to living with Mr. Warbucks, Ms. Farrell, and Annie pretty quickly and Mr. Warbucks and Ms. Farrell became Mommy and Daddy.

"I love you, Mommy and Daddy," I said, looking at Mom and Dad that first day I was adopted.

"We love you, too, sweetheart," Daddy said, giving me a hug. I hadn't ever been happier.

I was tired by the end of my first day at the mansion, so when Mommy said it was bedtime; I was more than ready for it. She showed me my now room and I was amazed at it. It was so big!

"Goodnight, sweetheart. Sleep well," Mommy said, tucking me into bed.

"Goodnight," I said, falling asleep. I loved how my life was turning out. I'm so lucky to have the family that I have today and I'm so glad that I've met Annie. She's made such an impact on my life and I honestly don't know what I would do without her. I love her so much.
