I learned that even if I have a dream, that doesn’t mean it necessarily would become a reality. As much as I wanted my parents to get back together, I saw, as I got older, they have become two completely different people. I’m just thankful they were together long enough to have a little baby girl, me! Though, I still blame my stepmother for my crushed dream of having my two parents together again, I’m so thankful she gave birth to my two brothers who have my heart. People say everything happens for a reason, and this chapter of my life proves that too be true because without my parents divorce, I wouldn’t have two brothers who love me as much as I love them.

Quote 3: “But to learn in a single moment that both my mother and my father had died and left me, and that my sister too was lost to me forever… at once my mind felt like a broken vase that would not stand I was lost even within the room around me” (Golden 103) 1.
His wife you could say “wore the pants’ in his new family.” He should have made decisions that concerned our relationship and me but he didn’t. I never dreamed the day would come when someone would come between one of my parents and I, at most a spouse of one of my parents. I was in his life long before she and his new family came into it. I felt that I was being treated unfairly. I was supposed to be daddy’s little girl just as most girls dream about.

I had just gotten engaged to my now husband and a few months later we found out we were expecting. I was living at home with my parents and felt so much guilt that I had to share what I thought was wonderful news with my parents which in turn for the worst. My father was furious and wanted me to have an abortion and was ready to drive me to a local clinic. My mother, on the other hand, disagrees with this because of our religious beliefs but said nothing. As you can imagine I was at crossroads and knew in my heart what the right decision was but it was difficult that I didn’t have the support of both of my parents.
When he got deported the first time I had to grow up and basically become a second mother to my siblings. Not only was my best friend taken away from me, but I also knew the responsibility that was about to be put on my shoulders because of this. Now, I really can’t enjoy my college years the way I wish I could have. My mother completely lost it when she heard the news about my dad. She had just overcome the fright of my sister’s diagnosis and now she had a whole different situation to stress over.
All throughout her childhood, and most of her young adult life until she ran away, my mother was pushed onto other family members. When my grandmother ran out of family members, she would leave my mom with foster parents for months of a time. She wasn’t a bad kid; she didn’t misbehave. She just wanted someone to want her around, someone to love her. Regrettably, the reason my grandmother went to such lengths to get rid of her own daughter, was for a man.

The next year, Nanda received a letter that the potential match had befriended the daughter of the family she was helping.
Most of my childhood was spent observing the behaviour of my mother and father. I was told that my parent’s relationship came to an end as my father couldn’t cope with the constant arguments over the lack of money. My mother told me that my father left and no one had heard of him again. She told me that it was probably that best decision the he had made during their married life. I later learnt the truth.
A couple of months ago I told my mom I was pregnant, she didn’t find out the way Julies mom did but she said the exact same thing, “I cant be a grandma, I’m to young.” But after letting everything sink in, she got to know Dylan, the guy I liked, and knew that we would be great parents. No we aren’t married and Dylan’s just a little bit smarter than Tod but our imperfections are what make us perfect. Getting pregnant young is a scary thing and if you don’t have support it makes things even more terrifying. Julie and I were okay, we had our families and the father of our child their the whole
