Comic #265: Finding a Pearl

October 9, 2017

Back in a previous comic, Chelsea mentions that she didn't find Pearl, but rather, "Pearl found me." We're about to find out how that happened.

To help clarify, the characters in the first panel are the first foster mom/foster kids that Chelsea encountered as a child. This bit of history takes place not long after she was first placed in foster care at age 5, so whatever happened to her parents is still fresh in her memory at this point.
