Better Than One

“Better Than One” by Calla Carter was a heartfelt and personal piece about what could have been a life changing experience. Calla set the mood by talking about how anxious she was and describing her emotions of finally meeting her mom. It was clear this day was important by the amount of money the narrator spent for just a few hours with her birth mother. You could feel the tension as the barrater awaits her mothers arrival. Many people who are adopted could relate to this piece and the feelings of wanting to meet their biological parent. When the narrator’s mother cancels it is extremely unexpected and gave the piece a surprise twist.
