My name is Katie (the names in this are not real names for privacy reasons).
When I was just 2 years old my mother past away and I was immediately taken into care. My dad had said he was not in the right frame of mind and wasn’t coping enough to take me on full time.
A few months later my blood aunt Joanne took me on as her own and adopted me. With her own daughter Amelia and boyfriend Dale we were a happy family. Amelia is one year older than me and I am now 13 years old and she is 14.
When we were younger we got on like that we were best friends. But as time passed on we became complete opposites. I became naughty at school and at home and always wanting to go out with my friends etc.
And all she wanted to do was sit inside, she also has brutal asthma and has nearly passed away a few times. 11 years on my aunt had broken up with Dale and got a new boyfriend called Wayne they then got married when I was at the age of 4. I still saw my dad and loved going over at the weekends.
