Growing up, we all count on our parents to teach us. We depend on them, and sometimes, they depend on us. They teach us how to brush our teeth, how to go to the bathroom, and even if we don't realize it, they teach us how to love. They mold and shape us and we do the same, in a way, to them. Now, some of us are lucky. We are born into happy, full homes to someone who wants us, who already loves us.

They will grow up feeling loved, they will grow up knowing they can do whatever they decide. But not all of us are that lucky.
