My Story By: Abby Y

I was born in Madison, Wisconsin on June 12, 2004. I was raised in Brooklyn at first and then moved to Oregon with my dad and my 11 year old brother Austin.
I’m in 7th grade and go to Oregon Middle School home of the Panthers! I love homecoming because I love watching the football game, but most of all I love getting to hang out with my best friend Cassidy and supporting the team.
I did cross country at the beginning of the year and now I play basketball . I am also looking forward to doing track in spring too. I love sports because they take your mind off of what is happening around you so you can just do what you love.

Lately my step dad Kyle has been in the hospital. He has a bad heart and pretty much doesn’t have anything left of it. He has been living off of batteries that you have to plug into the wall for about the past year. It has been really hard on Austin and I, his 7 year old son Seth, and especially my mom. Kyle is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and he has changed my life a lot. He even puts up with me. He might not have much of a real heart left, but he still has the biggest heart I’ve ever seen.

Recently there has been a new member added to my family. My mom had a baby girl and her name is Kylie. She is now 1 year old and she’s a really happy baby. She is always smiling and laughing, not often will you ever see her cry. Kylie brings joy to everyone that see’s her especially me! If she was in the world’s cutest baby contest, she’ll easily win!
My dad is Married to my stepmom Melissa. She has 2 kids, Lillian is 15 and Paige is 9. We always do a lot of fun stuff together like going to water parks, going to the mall or games, and we’d even just have fun family nights.
At my moms I usually just hang out with my cats because it is really laid back. When I go visit my aunts and uncles it is a different story, it is chaotic! All my family is crazy in a good and funny way, I guess that means I am too!
When I grow up I want to be a photographer because I love taking pictures . I walk around town sometimes just taking pictures because that is what I love doing. I chase my dreams instead of waiting for the wrong one to come to me.
