    Is It Cause I'm Adopted?

    It seems that way. I'm the youngest, and I'm adopted. My sister can do everything better than I can. Mam has no reason to bother with me, the kid in the freaky clothes with the scary makeup. No reason to care about me. I'm just me. She's better. I'm worse. That's all that will...

    shadow. My parents treat like she's perfect but like I never do anything right. My dad's opinion means the most to me and I can't get him to be happy with me.
