One of the hardest things about being in foster care and being adopted is that nobody looks like you.

Opening scene: 78 year old Merika introduces her self to the audience
78 year old Merika: Hello everybody. I am so glad yall could make it. They told me there would be a lot of people but wow, aint nobody told me they all was gonna be fine. Hell naw, aint nobody told me yall was gonna be this damn fine. (laughs) ok. Let me get back to why we are here. This year I made 78 years on this planet. And look at me, looking good, feeling good, healthy as an ox and aint going no where no time soon. I am the same age my mother was when she passed. My 78 is much different from her 78.
My poor mother was a sickly woman at 78. She had a weak heart. Not me, though. I have done so many things in my 78 years. When I made 40 I started studing to become a medium. You know, somebody that can talk to the dead. All this studying I been doing so I can talk to my parents. I really want to know that they know that I am doing fine. I had many bumps along the way but I am doing fantastic. I think I am ready to try to make a connection with my mother and yall get to witness it!
