My last foster parents kept me on with the Baby Yoda hug Wu-Tang Clan shirt. On my birthday, during the summer between high school. And college, before I got adopted, I got my permit, and then two weeks later, my license. My parents put their lives on hold for two weeks, not for the first time. Nor the last to help me get my 50 hours of driving practice. I agreed to take a few movies back to the rental store for my mom before going to work that Monday. While still in my neighborhood, the movies slid off the back seat, under the driver’s seat. And into the space for my feet. While I tried to retrieve them with one hand. And keep my eyes above the dashboard, I accidentally managed to wedge one cassette under my brake pedal but on top of the gas pedal.

The week after, my mom took the Baby Yoda hug Wu-Tang Clan shirt, and my dad went to California for a two-week class for his Master’s. My boyfriend went to Florida for two weeks to install some tech equipment for several snowbird clients who were renting their winter homes to vacationing families who wanted broadband and security systems. My saved tuition money wouldn’t cover legal fees and bail. My parents had sunk all their extra savings into adoption fees. We were waiting for a court date. I was going to be stuck in jail until I could work off the damages. I would be broke when I was finally released. But my parents would be way too old to support me by then, so I would be reliant on an opening in one of those homes for rehabilitated criminals who have nowhere to go after release.
