Unwanted by her biological parents, Angel was placed in a foster home where she was raped and beaten. The sexual and physical abuse she experienced there made it difficult for her to become a normal kid. Even when Ron, her foster father, was found guilty for one count of indecent liberties of a minor, sexual assault, and one count of sodomy, it was still hard for Angel to adjust when she was back with her birth mother. Her large family lived in a one-bedroom shack. Life was different after she was molested, and Angel did not come back the same child that her mother Gloria had known before. Gloria just could not connect with her daughter; therefore, she sent her away.
