Nobody's child...........

The little girl was lead outside and unceremoniously put in the taxi.......... she had few possessions, all in a plastic grocery bag. As the taxi pulled away, she stared out the back window, tears streaming down her face. She had no idea where she was going, or for that matter, why she was going........... 
She reached her destination, and even after the long drive, the tears were still running down her face. The lady and man who met her, did what they could to console her, and showed her to her new room. There were two other children in the room, both young girls, who made fun of her for her crying. Although if they'd thought back, would have realized they had done the same thing when they were sent off, too.
She couldn't sleep or eat for awhile, all that she had on her mind was why? She was five years old at the time. A cute little blue eyed, blond child, who was skinny as a rake handle, and quiet as a tomb.
She had known happiness, or had thought she had, but as time went by, she realized that now, she actually had that happiness. Not only were there other little girls to play with, but she had brothers! Two little boys who actually adored her and protected her from all that could harm her. 
Uncle Jack and Aunt Loretta loved her, and had decided they wanted to adopt her. They put the legal process in motion and waited. She had been with them for several years, and of all the foster children they had taken in, they loved her and wanted to make her their own. They had adopted the boys, and were so very proud of them, and they knew, she would always make them proud of her.She was smart, and she was gentle and kind.
Finally, after a very long process, Jack and Loretta were informed that her parents would not let the adoption go through. She was to be returned to them. So once again she was in a taxi looking out the back window....... tears streaming down her face, and off to another unknown..............................
