Danielle J Kleckenberg lived in an orphanage.
No, she wasn't an orphan. Her parents abandoned her after her brother's death.
She thinks all hope is lost, until a big, noisy family comes into her life.
Is everything going to be ok?
"Danielle, i'm sorry. Your brother, he didn't make it."
She remembered hearing those words and her whole world came crashing down. Danielle remembered falling to the ground, screaming her brothers name.
"Shut up you brat" Danielle's dad hissed in her ear.
She knew she was getting a beating when she got home, but frankly she didn't care. She needed her brother.
She remembered sitting in the car, an awkward silence between the family. Then she remembered being pushed out of the car, landing painfully on her face. Then the screeching of tires.
Danielle remembered lying there in pain, before she heard another screeching of tires.
