Adoption - Personal Narrative

My mother was all I had in this world. It has been two weeks and I
still refuse to believe she has gone. During my mothers last few
weeks, her face totally changed; cancer is such a terrible disease.
Why did she have to leave me to cope with all this on my own? It is so

Apparently there was a big secret that I would find out. A short while
before she passed away, my mother said that I had to read her will and
I would find out what it was. Couldn't be half as bad as she was
making it out I thought. But back then; I couldn't of even dreamt of
what was to happen to me.

I burst out crying. I was scared, hurt and felt like no one. I had

she be? She is my mother after all, even if I hadn't seen her for
fourteen years.

I sat in that same sofa for six hours. Listening to a lot of
explanations and hearing a lot of stories was beginning to confuse me.
I still couldn't believe it all. My head was aching; it all felt like
far too much shock and excitement for one day. Things really didn't
seem to turn out bad though.

Well, it's been two months and I'm sitting in a boring maths lesson
writing this amazing story. Life is so different and I have had to
adjust with a lot of things. I will always miss my mother though. My
new parents are absolutely great! Whoops! Speaking of parents, here
comes my dad; I know I should be paying attention in his lessons! My
dad sure is nice but having him as a teacher- well that's another

Essay about Personal Narative- Tough Girl - Personal Narative- Tough Girl She went to the land of Hollywood with a diamond wedding necklace hanging loosely from her neck like a noose before it gives its snapping goodbye.

I have visited the monstrous trees of the Sequoia National Forest, stood on the edge of the Grande Canyon and have jumped on the beds at Caesar’s Palace in Lake Tahoe. However, I have discovered that when reflecting on my childhood, it is not the trips that come to mind, instead there are details from everyday doings; a deck of cards, a silver bank or an ice cream flavor....   [tags: Personal Narrative] 398 words

Personal Narrative- Christmas Cookies Essay - Personal Narrative- Christmas Cookies Although I have grown up to be entirely inept at the art of cooking, as to make even the most wretched chef ridicule my sad baking attempts, my childhood would have indicated otherwise; I was always on the countertop next to my mother’s cooking bowl, adding and mixing ingredients that would doubtlessly create a delicious food. When I was younger, cooking came intrinsically with the holiday season, which made that time of year the prime occasion for me to unite with ounces and ounces of satin dark chocolate, various other messy and gooey ingredients, numerous cooking utensils, and the assistance of my mother to cook what would soon be an edible masterpie...   [tags: Personal Narrative] 564 words
