A young lady of 15yrs old were thrown out of her mums house, by her mother and stepfather. This young lady's biological father passed away when she was 4 months old. Her mum remarried another man and he raised this girl and now its been said that she must leave her home because they don't want her she must go 4 an adoption at the age of 15yrs.this young lady went and stay by her friend 3 houses away from theirs. How can a mother be so crewl to her child. What if that girl ends up in the wrong hands and be killed or raped. Or she has to become something she never intends to be just because of survival.
