She brought energy and spirit to the room. I idolized my big sister, of course, who was as cool as anyone could be. I lived for those days when she hung out with me. We made up dance routines together, and when I was scared at night, she let me crawl into her small single bed and scrunch up close to her so I could fall asleep. Brooklyn was my childhood heaven. My sister and I played outside with the other kids on our block, or sat on the front stoop and watched the world go by, but more than anything, Brooklyn was about two things: community and food.

The doctor asked me question after question, expressionless as she wrote down what I said. And then, of course, came the questions about my family history—my mother’s chronic illnesses, panic attacks, depression. My grandmother’s stomach issues and death from cancer.

Sometimes, we waited for hours for the final decision. My sister put her arm around me, knowing I was so very sad at the prospect of not getting to go.
