    Hello! I've been abused by my sister, she always hits me or slaps me, one time she even strangled me. she once threw a bottle and hit my ribs, it hurt for a week. my parents love her more than me because she's adopted, my sister always accuses me of making fun of her for being adopted. one time my parents screamed at me for an hour for waking up at 6 am not 5 am, she can't even wake up at 10:30. me and my 3 friends wanna run away from home because we're abused, it makes us sick. the sad thing is just we're minors, so we can't run away from home. I don't wanna contact the police most likely because it would cause more problems. we'd run away at around age 18 since it's the legal age for us to run away from home, but we're still preteens, it would be a long, really long time. my mom once threatened to take my phone away because my friends are "distracting" me. I once had suicidal thoughts of killing myself, but I was scared and I know for a fact that there are still people that love me, like my friends so I just couldn't do it. could you guys maybe provide us with a good way to run away? we would really appreciate it. thanks a lot!
