Zoey had a great life. She was loved by her parents. She was well provided for and cared for. She adored her parents and looked up to her as role models.
Zoey was very smart. She was talented. She got goos grades in school. She received awards for being a young scholar. Her standardized test scores were very high. She was very athletic but she also liked art. She liked yo draw and paint.
She was very funy. She liked to joke around. She never got onto trouble. She stayed home except fot school activities. She enjoyed hanging out with her parents.
They had always been close. Sense she was a little girl. For the longest time it was just her and her parents. Due to medical complications, her parents did not believe that they could have any more children. When zoey was 11, her mom got pregnant with her sister. When she was 14, she had another sister.
What zoey did not know waa that she was adopted. Those she beleved were her parents were not his birth parents. They did not want to keep this from her. They were reluctent to tell her.
To them,zoey was just as much blood as there other kids. They loved her more then anything. She loved them.
They were not sure when to tell her. They knew that they probably should have told her long before but they fid not.
There were multiple reasons why they did not want to tell her. They did not agree with the reasons behind her birth parents decison to put her up for adoption. They did not want to tell her the truth. They were devisated each time they thought about it.
They knew it would not get any easier.they knew that they had to just do it. She came home from school. They had her favorate cup cakes. She sat down.
“Sit down hunnie.” her mom said. She sat down. She had no idea what is going on. “Hunnie, you know that we love you very very much. ” her dad said.”of course i do. You guys are amazing. ” she said.
“We do love you more then we could ever say. ” her mom told her. She knew something was up. She had no idea what he was. She was afraid that it might be a health concern. Both her parents were fairly healthy. There was always that fear.
She could tell that her parents were fighting back the tears. She had no idea why. She was really spooked. Her parents were very happy people. They were almost never sad.
She was really confused and now a little scared. “What is going on?” zoey asked. “Well. You see. You were adopted. We adopted you when you were a todler.” her dad said.
Zoey was totaly shocked. She had no idea that this was what was going on. She never would have thought that this was the case.
“Im adopted?” she asked. “Yes. We adopted you. ” her mom said. “Oh my! I had no idea . ” zoey said. “I understand that this is quite a shock. We love you as if you were our own.to us you absolutly are. ” her dad assured her.
“Do you know who my birth parents are? ” Zoey asked. ” yes we do. “Her dad said. “They are still alive? ” she asked. “To the best of our knowledge,yes. “Her mom said.
“Do you know why they gave me up for adoption? ” she asked. Her mom took a big gulp. “We do. ” her dad said. “What was the reason? ” she asked. ” well you see . They had a dog. It was your farthers prized dog. Aperently you were alergic to the dog. The doctor said that you and the dog could not co exist in the same time. ” her farther said.
“They gave me up because i was alergic to the dog. They loved the dog more then me. They chose the dog over me?” she asked.
“I don’t want to speak ill of your parents. You were well cared for during your early years. ” her mom said.
Zoey was totaly shocked. She could not believe all of this. “Look we chose you. We love you. We are your parents. That will never change. ” her dad said.
Zoey cried a lot that night. She recovered from the shock. She loved her adopted parents. They were her real parents as far as she was concerned.
She wanted to meet her real parents.she just wanted to meet them. She did research. She found them. They still lived in the same house they lived in when she was a baby.
The summer before she started colege,she drove to the house she spent the first year of her life there. She did not remeber any of it.
She saw a younger girl . she was about ten. ” hello” she asked.” is your mom and dad home? ” zoey asked. She went inside and got her mom. Her mom came out.
“Hello! Can i help you?” she asked. “Are you kendra Lester? ” she asked. “Yes i am kendra. Who are you?” she asked. “I am zoey. I wanted to meet you. ” she said.
“Sarah why dont you go play in the play room with your brothers.keep the dog in the other room ” kendra said. She went to the other room.
“Are you in colege?” kendra asked. “I huat graduated . i am going this fall. “Zoey said. “What place did you graduate in?” she asked. ” fith. ” she said. “Good for you. ” kendra said.” are you still alergic to dogs?”she asked. “Yes i am. ” zoey said.
“When did you find out?” she asked.”recently. ” she said the door opened. Greg entered. “Kend,is someone hear?” greig asked. ” yes . This is Zoey ” kendra said.
“Who do you know my wife. Wait a minute that zoey?” greg asked.” yes. That Zoey. ” kendra said. “Were your step parents good to you?” he asked. “Yes they are. ” Zoey said. “I am glad to hear that. ” greg said .
She decided to go . she said her goidbyes. Greig walked her out. ” you probably dont understand our decison to give you up. ” greg said. “It is a bit disconcerting. ” zoey said. ” duke was not just my dog. He was my budy. He has been with me a long time. I know you don’t understand. You seemed to have great step parents. ” Greg said. She did not want to argue with him.
