Into One

by Angela VA

Family Contest Winner 
One single woman
Who has never given birth

One child who had five prior homes
Who struggles to believe she'll be kept

Three more children, from birth parents
Who loved drugs more than them

Out of pain and into belonging
They formed a family

One mother with
Two daughters and two sons

Writing Prompt
