My oldest sister lived in Akron with an Aunt and uncle, my middle sister lived with my grandma and grandpa in republic, by the time the 3 of us were together it was rough. Lori was always babied by grandma, Tina was raised to be who she is, and me, I didn’t have anyone growing up around for the first 7yrs of my life, I played in the basement on a battery operated car, that was my doings, I mean I never had any friends or Anything like that and I was thrown into the situation with 2 older sisters always telling me what to do, I mean they literally put A rope around my neck and hung me, I’ve had many of times where it was just rough sometimes. My sisters did teach me a lot growing up, and I do appreciate each ones effort to, you know, keep me safe.
My mother met my dad, they got married, and he took it upon himself to give us his name. I was 7, and I was given a choice it was either get adopted or have 3 females very mad at me. Even at the ripe old age of 7 I knew what I had to do. You met my mother and sisters; I was so outnumbered I figured I had better go with it. I loved my dad then and I love him even more today, I am very happy that he is my father. I wouldn’t have it any other way
