I remember my mom crying and grabbing a hold of my father pleading with him not to leave us.

I can't imagine how awful that must have been!

Would be the day my lil bro discovered there is no santa. I was trying to seperate my mother and step father. Finally did. He decided to go get santa presents from there room. Lil brother woke up scared and walked into the living room. Stepfather came down the hall and saw him and me. Threw the gifts across the room and said, Here is your dam christmas.

I'll never forget my Mum telling me that the first ever family holiday we'd planned to take had to be cancelled because it couldn't be afforded.

When they used to choose up sides for sports teams, I was always one of the last kids picked.
