I read a few of your posts to get a little background. That is really difficult to lose your sister and be in a home where you don’t feel accepted or possibly even wanted. I don’t know about your specific circumstances about how you were adopted by that family? If it was through Social services or another agency. Either way you can contact Social services as they may be able to provide services to try to improve things in your home or help you find another placement. Where I live, I work in Social services and we have a specific unit focused on adoptive families. First, they do try to save the adoptive placement but if it is not possible, then they look for another forever home. Sending you strength and support.

There are “failed adoptions”. I’m not sure if the adoption is dissolved or if the parental rights are terminated. Biological parents have their rights terminated before the children can be adopted. At least in my state. I don’t know if other states have different processes. Also, you might look into emancipation. That would allow you to leave the home and be out on your own at 16. But you have to have independent living skills and be able to take care of yourself. Our Social services has providers to help teenagers learn the skills before emancipation. You might have some of these options and can Google them in your county or state or call the Department of Social (or Human) Services in your area.
