Love and Inspiration: a poem

Boys and Girls Club my home and family
A place with so much love to give
Many smiling faces to see
A place that's full of laughter
A place filled with glee
Everyone at Boys and Girls Club
Mean so much to me
It has been my home since I was small
I love Boys and Girls Club
I love you all
Everyone has taught me so much about life
You have kept me from wrong
And have led me into right
Without all of you I would not be who I am
Boys and Girls Club holds a special place in my heart
Where you will always stand
So to all the staff, and all the kids
I give you all the passion I have to give
You have been such an inspiration to me
My love for Boys and Girls Club
Will go on for eternity
I have been here since I was six
I thank you all for all the love I get
So to Ms. Sally, Ms. Silvia, and the one and only Ms. Dionne
To everyone at Boys and Girls Club
Thanks for making me who I am
Without you I would be nothing
I love you all.

A Special Gift

If I had $100 to buy someone a special gift for the holidays I will definitely choose my foster mom without a doubt. There are many reasons why I would pick her. The most important reason is because she considers me and my sister a child of her own. She has raised me since I was six years old, it was a time when I really needed help, someone to care for me and most importantly, love me.

She has supported me during thick and thin times; she gives me advice, and cheers me up when I feel down. She not only offered me a shelter but a family as well. Thanks to her I've had a very nice childhood, I have great memories and I have been beyond blessed. We have spent five Christmas together where she has included me and my sister in her gift list. I constantly let her know how happy and grateful I am for everything she has done for us. I clearly remember my sister and I saved both of our allowance for two months straight to get her a Christmas gift. We wanted to buy her everything but of course we couldn't afford it. We ended up buying her a huggable stuffed bear. She loved it, even though she mentioned she already has the best gift-which is having us in her life. We couldn't believe this lady-who is not our real mother -cared so much for us.

I will never ever forget this beautiful experience. If I had $100 dollars this will be my opportunity to give her something in return. I know money is not the only way to show her my eternal gratitude but I sure will feel very happy having an opportunity to give her something in return. She is my angel! I know my sister and I are in good hands. If I don't win I'm just grateful I had a chance to put my feelings into words.

Some people might think being a foster kid is hard, I say yes it can be, but one thing I have learned; things happen for a reason and living with her has been the best thing that has happened to my sister and me.
