At the tender age of 5 years old, Sirrah Keyarra Torielle Winters is adopted by a wealthy, military family. At first, it is a dream come true for Sirrah. She had everything she could ever ask for. Until her peers start ridiculing her. Sirrah does her best to ignore them and continues to lean on her family for love and support. However, as Sirrah becomes a teenager, she wishes she never was adopted.
  
   Different from her family, her melanin skin made her stand out. She feels like she'll never fit in and begins to wonders if the woman who gave her up looks like her.

'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 .
