When our home was foreclosed on

I couldn’t help crying when my parents told me the news: Our home of 18 years had been foreclosed on. It was a shock. Plus, I had been living in that house for my whole life, so it was hard to think about letting it all go. 

We didn’t know where we would go or what we would do. The only thing we pretty much knew for sure was that we’d be moving somewhere out of state, because most places in California are very expensive.
