When our home was foreclosed on

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Trending - April 14, 2020

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. 

It wasn’t until a few weeks later that my mom suggested moving to the Midwest, where she’d gone to high school. My younger sister and I were a bit skeptical because it was so far away from everything we’d ever known. But in the end, there wasn’t a better option.
