    Why Not?

    For the most part, I am happy with what I already have. Granted, things are missing from making this my ideal situation, but that doesn't mean things aren't good anyway. I'm willing to give some things up so my family can have.

    It Has Always Been a Part of Me

      There was a time when I did get along with my adoptive mom, which was shortly after the divorce. She used to tell us stories about what we were like when we were toddlers, brought in to her home or what our previous living conditions were. Whether these stories are true I...

    Dear God... Why Me?

    I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home. Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get...

    An Answer To A Simple Question
