I Was a Homeless Kid in Mexico

  • Published on Feb 1, 2019
  • It all started from a car crash. One that took away a parent and a brother. After that she was left to fend for herself from the age of 7 onwards. She lost her childhood and had to fight to survive enduring things that even adults shouldn't be exposed to. She fought her whole life to survive - even when she was safe. And just when she was about to break down, she was saved by a mental hospital. There she learned how to deal with what she went through and how to live with her past. After so much work on herself she made it out to the other side scarred but okay. What's most beautiful is that she was able to help those who had a past like her. Sometimes all they needed was just to know that they were not alone. Just to know that there was someone else who went through what they are going through and made it out okay. And this is the magic of stories.

    The girl's aunt needs to have her back scraped against a cheese grater and have a gallon of hand sanitizer poured on the wounds. And those guys who taken the two girls to the orphanage should all have buckets of molasses and acorns poured right on them. Then her first foster mom gets boiling gravy poured into her face and get viciously attacked by raccoons. And her foster dad on the other hand, should be horribly stomped on the crotch by an elephant, disemboweled by a giant anteater, and be forced to drink gasoline and be shoved into a furnace where he'll explode. Last but not least, the lady at the orphanage should have rusty barbed wire wrapped around her neck and have her legs cut open with a machete. Then she'll have her feet put in a blender and tossed into the ocean to have her flesh eaten by hammerhead sharks while she's still alive.

    Foster families can be amazing but they can also suck and based on some of the Foster families that she got put with it's clear that they do not do enough background checks or proper work to make sure that these people are suitable to take care of kids
