I woke up this morning and I couldn't stop crying, cos this place is not my home, even though everyone says it is.

When I was a little girl Mum would always hug me when I cried and tell me everything would be all right. Who's gunna hug me here?

Mary lives with the Burkes, but they're not her real family.

She hasn't seen her real mum and dad since she was taken away from them five years ago. Everyone tells her to forget about them, but she can't. She wants to find out why she was taken, and where she really belongs.
