Miranda was in DCF…

until the court said she could move home to her mother’s house. After she went back home, her mother was arrested and went to jail. Miranda was left to live with her older sister who always fought with her.

Her sister kicked her out soon after her mother went to jail. Her father couldn’t take care of her.After being kicked out by her sister, she lived in 5 different places. Some of her stays have been with family and some with friends. She stayed in a shelter for a short time, but left there because she didn’t want the program to call DCF. She doesn’t want to be in DCF care.

Miranda goes to school every day, except for the days when she is moving from one house to another and has to move her belongings.

She is currently “couch surfing” with relatives and friends.
