I think Carley has changed a lot from when we first were introduced to her. Over the days in the book you got to see her develop into a more responsible and kind person, you also get to see her become more adjusted to the Murphys and start to like and love them more. She's even getting along with Daniel now. I also think Mr. Murphy and her are starting to grow a bond. You can definitely see what I mean by responsible and kind when Michael Eric had a seizure. Instead of ignoring Mrs. Murphy's request of staying with the boys she stayed strong, and stayed to watch over them. She also gave Michael Eric her "only" thing that comforted her in that stage of her life, the stuffed giraffe she got in that backpack the foster care gave her, Mr. Longneck. You can definitely see how much she cares for him in this moment, even when she still hasn't adjusted to the Murphys that much. Also in the stage of the book we are in now, she's helping out Daniel with Basketball even know their rough start. I believe these are both good examples of the kindness and responsibility she has gained over time.
