My grandparents were so happy to finally have their first baby! It was all going so smooth sailing until she turned four years old. No she wasn’t going through “terrible fours”, something worse was happening. “At four, I tried to run away because my little brother was born and my parents told me he was coming home to stay forever”, she says. Luckily, she wasn’t able to run away from home.
We were both given unconditional love and we still get all that from my parents, we are in our mid and late forties. My sister and I grew up to be good people, hard working woman, which we learned from our parents and surrounding families. But I must say that the one thing I could have done without was all their fighting and although my mother denies it, there was domestic abuse which in some way affected us or at least me. There should be no domestic violence; no physical or verbal or mental abuse to have a functional healthy family. In some way, I feel that part of my childhood made me dysfunctional at least during my first marriage.
This can be from lack of parenting, or growing up with no hard working role models. Although, children struggle everyday with achieving success, it has been proven it can be achieved through hard work and determination. Oprah Winfrey is a key example, in which one has overcome a troubled childhood and made great accomplishments. As a child, Oprah shuffled between living with family members. She spent her first couple of years living with her grandmother, but when she fell ill, the six year old Oprah was sent to live with her mother in a boarding house.

Desiree’s parents disagreed to their marriage and didn 't let their daughter leave and ruren the name of the family. So Desiree and Armand left regardless to what her parents say and got a home that can be described as a sad looking place. As time went on living by themselves Desiree had found out that she was pregnant. When Armand found out he was filled with joy and excitement.
Tracy and Jerry met up for casual sex every week for a year. Those sex days lead to them building a strong relationship with one another.

When I was younger I did not know who my parents were and I always thought I was the only child. Until I was about five was when I had first met my biological mother and my life changed drastically. I had visits with my mother until I was my be six years old then she stopped. Then when I was eight I moved to my fifteenth and last foster family (not home because I moved to my foster mother 's mom 's house when was thirteen and currency still live with them). I had unsupervised weekend visits over my biological sister 's house when I was 9, but I was treated very differently by my bio mother than my other siblings even though I was the youngest.
My mom is my best friend, my sister, and my mom; I tell her everything and she tells me everything! I am so thankful I have such a strong relationship with my mom, because some people do not have a mother figure in their life at all. My mom is my modern day hero because of her strength, generosity, and confidence. The first characteristic that makes my mom my modern day hero, is her strength. Like most mothers, my mom goes through a lot in one day, especially with three kids.
However my father is having some financial problems. That is the reason why I applied for this scholarship. My mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer and aware of her condition in the spring of my junior year in high school. Back then,I did not weep, I did not flinch. In fact, I hardly even moved even though I was terrified of what was coming as I might be losing someone who had been there for me since I was a kid but from that point onward, I vowed that I would do anything and everything to please my mother and make her proud of me.Every subsequent award won and every honor bestowed upon me has been inspired by the recollection of my mother's plight.
My family and friends play a large support role in my life. In times of need and in times of positivity there a few people I want to share those moments with and turn to. When considering who I surround myself with I make sure that these people have similar values as me and will be there for me in times of need. The biggest social supports I have in my life are my mother and my sister. I have somewhat of a unique situation because my parents got divorced when I was in high school.
I went on through high school and graduated in May 1998. After my graduation I was told that I was adopted and they wasn’t my real parents and I said what do you mean and why did Suzy give me my baby picture and why don’t you have a lot of pictures of me and Suzy does? The question just keep going on and on. Well in that same year my mother set me an account on Chattanooga singles line. I told her she was crazy, but I gave it a try and see if I would find my Mr.
