Arrival Story: I lived at a place with my mommy and sister where there were lots of children. we were very afraid of them, they were MEAN. They did awful things to my sister and she died. My mommy ran away but I was so tiny I didn't know what to do, I begged for food but the man kicked me. The lady that lived next door saw what was going on and called my new mommy. They trapped me and took me to the Dr. I was in so starved that I had to get bigger and healthier before they could do surgery on me to fix my side. When I was kicked it caused a hernia and my kidney was pushing through it. I was still afraid of people but I made friends with Robert Tail then Dew and everybody else. I finally got big enough to have my surgery. I'm still petite, but now I love my mommy and daddy and am very happy.
