    Thanks for reaching out to us. We are so sorry to hear home is toxic for you and your sister. That sounds really tough. At least it sounds like you do have each other, which is good. If there is abuse at home either one of you can call your state's child protective services hotline to make a report. Or you can call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453. It's up to you.

    Your sister would have to go through the court system to obtain guardianship over you. We aren't legal experts, but we can provide numbers to legal aid services if you tell us what state you are in. You (or your sister) can either respond in this thread or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat with us at the portal at You and your sister don't have to face this by yourselves. We are here to listen and help. Hope to hear from you soon!

    All the best,
