The Giersons were cut from a different clothe, and her father wanted to make sure that everyone in town knew this. This being, the only real contact with the outside world that Emily could enjoy, was that of which her father dictated to her. This early trauma Emily had to endure did a great un-justice to her emotionally, crippling her for the rest of her life.

Majority of the names are family’s desire for him or her to succeed in the future, or be loved by anyone. To my family’s aspiration, we wished for Ryuki to always have the strength to conquer any obstacles that might get in his way and never give up. He was raised by me, a single mother with the support of my family till this day. I had taken Ryuki when he was a year old into my family’s home safely after a police escort to where I used to live with his biological father.

A month into her life her parents filled for divorce and her father claimed he didn’t not have to pay child support because this was not his child, hearing this the surrogate mother got involved and fought for custody of the child.

I knew my husband, Robert, was going to be upset, but I said yes anyway. I couldn't let those sad eyes go to the shelter, no matter how long Rob did not talk to me.

Oedipus had his flaws, but overall he was a good person. There is no possible way that Oedipus’ prophecy could have been avoided. So for these reasons, Oedipus was a victim of prophecy. Oedipus was only a couple of days old when his parents left him to die. While his mother, Jocasta, was still pregnant with him, she was given her unborn son’s prophecy: “He shall be proved father and brother both to his own children in his house; to her that gave him birth, a son and husband both; a fellow sower in his father’s bed
