Five years later, she witnessed the abrupt separation of her parents and soon after her father's suicide. Her mother neglected her family as she slipped into depression and addictions. Her mother's friend Elma moved into their newly discovered haunted home, and she did her best to raise Carla and her siblings. Neglect, abuse, grief, CPS visits, and seeing her friends' normal lives made Carla realize her childhood was not healthy. Carla's spiritual connection to her deceased father and loved ones gave her the strength to overcome family obstacles. Learning about her parents and newfound relatives made her curious about her own experiences in high school and adulthood.
