For instance, McCandless only had two women in his life, his mom Billie McCandless and his sister Carine McCandless. In a documentary about Chris McCandless and his life, Billie mentions that he never brought a girl to their home. Also, in a letter to Chris, Billie implored, “ You have completely dropped away from all who love and care about you.

We had a total of 18 children placed with us during that time – ranging in age from one day old to 16 years old. There were 3 sets of twins among them – two sets of premature newborn twins with many medical concerns and issues and a physically abused 9-week-old infant. I had always wanted to try foster parenting, but knew I’d have to have the right partner to do a good job. My maternal grandfather said often when I was a child that if he had enough money he would build a big house and take in all children that needed homes and hire a nurse and teacher to live with them.

Growing up, it was always a treat to get a glass of Kool-Aid. Not just because of it’s flavor, but because I was able to have more Kool-Aid to drink than soda. I was only able to have soda one day on the weekends, but Kool-Aid I could have several times a week. I was also trying to be like my older brother; he would make a pitcher of Black Cherry Kool-Aid and pour me a glass. He never really was at home often, as he would go hang over at his friend’s to avoid my sister and I.
