Real life Box Car Children!

Growing up my mom used to read me Boxcar Children novels, and as fantastic as this lifestyle seemed I knew it as nothing more than a fictional story until about 5 minutes ago.  I just read this story of an 11 year old and 5 year old who are literally living out of a bus in Texas.  Apparently both parents of these children are imprisoned at a federal penitentiary, and the children were left to live with their Aunt.  Although the children state that they are cared for and home schooled by their aunt, Auntie Dearest states that she “works long 12 hour shifts and she ‘does her best to look after the kids'”.  Ok, if doing her best is leaving an 11 year old and 5 year old to live outside in an abandoned bus on her property and fend for themselves, she is a terrible excuse for a human being.  Click on the photo to get the whole crazy story.

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
