My Adoption Story by Gunnar Fausel


Hi, I am Gunnar and I will be telling you about my past and how I was adopted. I was adopted because my biological mother did not take good care of my two sisters and me. She did not have any money, we didn't have any clothes, she did not have a house, she did not have a car, and we did not have any toys. It was hard for the three of us.
