I am the oldest of 8 children
and I have 4 sisters but we are not close.
My family was abusive to me
and I was placed in foster care
with several foster siblings I have
no connection with today.
When I watched Charmed
I admired the Haliwell Sister’s bond.
Not only to each other but to all the
matriarchs in their family line.
They have family and I don’t.
I live out in Omaha, NE all alone
no family out here where I live.
I grow sad cause I long for family
to surround me like close sisters
who are there for each other through
think or thin whether good or bad.
