I had a half sister that was also adopted the same time I was which is four years younger than myself. My parents adopted 7 out of the 9 of us in total. Truly the most hard working humblest people I know. We never needing anything. I came from addicted birth parents whom weren’t married to each other. My birth mother took me away from where I was born in Corpus Chirsti, TX because of my addictive birth father and their abusive relationship. He as I was later explained was in jail at the time of my adoption for which his side of the family had given him money to come and get me and he did not. I’m well traveled as I’ve been to several countries as well as 48 States in the United States at least twice. I graduated high school tired college but it wasn’t for me. I left Kansas to move to Dallas, TX with my first love as he was training for the Olympic’s in wrestling in which he later became and is currently a WWE superstar.
