Sirrah Keyarra Torielle Winters is adopted by a wealthy family at the tender age of five. It is a dream come true until her peers begin ridiculing her dark skin and her so-called family, set her further apart away from the only place she called home. Sirrah becomes determined to search for her mother, filled with a hope she may finally find someone, someone to accept accepted.

'Kay, here we go! Just a thing: this is a kind of introduction, so I'd personally separate it from the rest of the chapter, maybe put it as a prologue or a foreword. This last sentence would be much more impressive and effective that way, in my oppinion.

It sounded better with this since it seems no one adopted her because she was dark skinned

This reminds me of a movie that I saw. One where the main protagonist is a British black woman adopted by wealth and respected white British family has to struggle to be accepted by those around her.

Sad chapter. I think you could really use your first sentence or two as an opportunity to be more descriptive. Example: I was standing on the sidewalk of the 1st Street McDonald's .
