The Angel Above MeNo one ever realizes what they have until they lose it. Whether it's a deeply loved person, or a an inanimate object that sits in the same place everyday. No one ever worries about it until one day when it's gone. The place doesn't feel the same afterwards no matter what. When I was sixteen my journey had just began. My life decided to turn, and I wasn't holding on.I'm a child who grew up in the typical home. I have two older sisters and a younger brother. When I was eleven my family moved to a small town called Stockbridge, Michigan and it really became the place I called home. At first I hated it, but who doesn't hate change when they're young? I lived there for seven years with my parents. My sisters were both older than me and for a long time I was the baby of the family. It was a given that I would be the spoiled one, and the sister who would be picked on all the time. It didn't hit me as hard until I was in middle school.

At two thirty Cindee wakes me up telling me we need to go. My mom, sister and I get in the car and rush to the hospital.
