These two girls are my nieces. Age 2 and 1. These girls are the strongest girls that I'm ever going to meet. I never thought I would really care about my niece Aluara until we had to take care of her because my sister-in-law has mental health issues. She and my eldest brother fought verbally and Alaura was eventually taken by the CPS. I was heartbroken. With her in foster care it's hard to make visitations because we live far away from the town that they live in. Soon after my second niece was born and also taken away from my brother and his wife. She was put in the same foster care as her sister. We were once able to take both girls out of the CPS site and take them wherever we please, this did not last long because of the verbal fights between my brother and his wife increased and intensified. Going to court and trying to fight for the girls back, was a lost hope. CPS told my mother that they would never get the grand-babies back, and that it was just a process that CPS had to put the parents through (if they got the girls back or not). This has put my family through plenty of stress, and we hope to get the girls in our care soon enough. Which, I doubt will happen. I am only 16 but I tell everyone when I turn 18 if I have the chance I would definitely adopt those two girls in a heartbeat. These girls don't know it yet, but I'm sure they're in it for the long haul and that they're going to have to be strong for it.
