My Grandma and Grandpa

My mom was 16 when she had me and my dad disappeared shortly thereafter. she was still living with my grandparents when she had me. At 21, she had my sister and became an alcoholic. She decided to move out rather than stop drinking, and when it came time to go, I didn't want to because I had become so close to my grandparents. the plan was to have me spend weekends with my mom and slowly wean me to living with her but it never worked. I did live with her one time in my early 20s and it was hell. I'm glad my grandparents raised me. I feel lucky to have had them as parents.

The good thing is that you grew up with your grand parents and weren't just given to them. It being your choice makes it that much better.
