Julia and Jenny Johnson with their grandmother

Our mom is technically our grandma but, we have lived with her since we were 3 1/2 and 2 years old. She gladly took us in and a couple years later she adopted us. We are now 14 and 12 and are showered with love and all the things children need. We are not rich, in fact we don't have much money at all, but mom makes us feel like the richest kid in the world. Before we came to live with our mom, everyone commented on how we always frowned. Now they comment on how much we smile and we can't stop. - Julia and Jenny Johnson, Margate
