FOUND by Debra in Vancouver, Washington

This afternoon I found this in my ex’s front yard as I was dropping our daughter off. My ex told me that the neighbors’ daughter has three foster children that she is in the process of trying to adopt, and wondered if this came from one of the older kids. It looked like whoever wrote it was starting a project as this was the front page of several sheets of notebook paper stapled together, but this is as far as they got. It’s been raining so the lines on the paper have run. I hope this kid has a brighter future than they started with. Keep writing and talking it out, kid! There is freedom in telling your story.

FOUND by Jessica F. at University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

My roommate Tracey found this remorseful letter on the ground near her school. The saddest part is that it had been sealed with tape and obviously never opened, meaning either that it never reached its recipient, or that she threw it on the ground without reading it.
