I grew up living with both my parents, who had divorced when I was about 5 years old. I lived through my mothers addictions , then my father’s abuse and alcoholism. I was then punished for their personal mistakes, by being placed into the Foster Care System. Group Homes, Foster Care, Boys Homes.Â I never really had a family or a parent. Still to this day, I struggle with relationships. I promised myself I would not fail my children, as my parents failed me. I was wrong and I suffer daily- emotionally, mentally; all while trying to blend two families. My life, with the life of the woman I love and her 3 kids I call my own. A single mom, without a father to her children. I have much to say and tell…. If you would please listen!
