By Emily Sparkman

I’d love to be mom; It’s not just about clothes, the high-heel shoes, the makeup etc, etc, etc. And I realized that sometimes I felt I was locked in a cage and couldn’t break out, and like I’m in a corner and can’t get out….how sometimes fathers and mothers are doing things that you don’t like.

Sometimes mom disappoints me, but when we’re happy I feel like I started a whole new me. Stars are sparking all over the place. It’s like I’m in my own little dream world. But through time I realize that they are trying to help us. So all of this isn’t their fault; it’s ours, well, mine. It’s just my fault that I make it into a fight and act like a three year old would act – and I’m not three, I’m a nine year old girl that’s been adopted from China and became an American citizen and moved to France.

I’m living a career that I never thought I’d have and I’m planning on being a writer. I know it’s weird that I don’t like reading, but I have so many books! Well, it’s good to keep secrets when you don’t want to get in trouble. That’s what I always said in my head when I did something bad, but there are other kinds of secrets like when you are embarrassed, like you have a crush on someone, or somebody told something you didn’t want everyone to know about.
