“My brother and I were both placed into foster homes at a young age. He was lucky—he went to a family called the Ripleys. I went through four different homes in three years, and each one was worse than the next. I’d get to see my brother every few months. Ms. Ripley would take us for lunch at McDonalds. Back then the word ‘family’ didn’t mean much to me. But the Ripleys made me feel welcome in their home. Whenever I did something wrong, Ms Ripley would sit me down and explain why it wasn’t OK. But then she’d say: ‘You’re not going anywhere. Because you belong to us now.’ Shortly after I joined the family, Mr Ripley was diagnosed with cancer. And later that year he passed away. Ms Ripley’s entire world fell apart. Nobody would have blamed her for taking us back. But instead, she took us to court and made it permanent. She worked whatever odd jobs she could find. We never had much, but we went to movies. We had family game nights. She must have been so stressed, but that’s not at all what I remember. I just remember the affirmation that she gave me. It was always: ‘You’re smart.’ And ‘You’re handsome.’ And ‘You survived all that stuff because you’re
strong.’ She cried when I joined the army, but she knew it was my best chance for an education. Last year I had a daughter of my own. And that really put me into an emotional tailspin. Because I realized how every little choice I make is going to affect her future. And then I started thinking about how different my life could have been. Because my early development had been the opposite of what a child’s should be. I should be broken, but I’m not. Because thirty years ago my Mum decided to keep me. And somehow, despite all her sadness and heartbreak, she poured enough love into me so that I could heal.”
Mum: (a telephone conversation):
KERRY: Hi, mum.
MUM: Did you get my text, love?
KERRY: Yeah, I saw it.
KERRY: So what?
MUM: Well, did you open the link?
KERRY: Aw, yeah, I …I dunno. I’m not quite—I don’t have time, you know, to be filling out forms and stuff,
mum. I’m busy.
MUM: Well, honestly, you shouldn’t be. I don’t know why you’re back to work at all, Kerry. You should be
taking time for yourself—
MUM: Anyway, I thought you’d say you’re busy, so I filled the form out for you. You don’t have to do
anything, except show up.
KERRY: Show up where? When?
MUM: He hasn’t set a date yet. He’s left that in your hands.
