It all started the morning after my mother died. She was always writing. Just like me, as you may know. Trying to secure her place in the world the best way she could. Writing was really the only way she could. Or try to at least. It's no surprise that she left behind letters, and journals. Piles and piles of them. She wrote anywhere she could. Mother believed in writing. Just like I do now. I think you all should too.

 

She left a note to my Father. And all of my brothers and sisters. Multiple of them, to be correct. So they can grow up knowing her, through her writing. I am the oldest- 15 at the time. I have three younger brothers and one younger sister. My name is Angelica, as you might know. My oldest brother is Aaron. He was 11. My second brother was 8, and his name is Charles. John-Church is my third brother, who was 6. And finally, there was my baby sister Hannah, named after my mother. 

 

I am going to be telling you my story. So I suggest you all get comfortable. I am writing it all down, but also telling you. Just like my mother did. She was always writing stories and telling them to me. I am going to make her proud. So I am so I am going to tell you all everything as it happened, and write just the same.
