Get to know us. our early life

a little about my early life…
i was born 13 weeks premature, my mom was only 17 she she had me.
i was in an incubator for 3 months, and had very limited contact with my parents, i weighed 2 pound 8 ounces at birth.
we lived with my dads parents and siblings for the first 2.5 years of my life. they are all alcoholics, and a lot of abuse took place when we were living there.
there was fighting, violence, emotional abuse. it was not a good atmosphere to live in.
our mom always says she was terrified living there, she had no alcoholism in her family, so wasnt used to that kinda atmosphere.
at age 2 we got our own place, and we moved with our parents to our own house. life got a little easier then. for a while at least.

  1. I am also a premmie, about twelve weeks early, and it affected my hearing. I always wondered how being in an incubator with limited contact to other human beings affects those babies, or me. It surely is a very hard way to be introduced to this world.

  2. I hope as you write this, you realize none of it was your fault. Life seems to dole out hardships unfairly, but I did read once that the best students get the hardest lessons – and everyone here knows you are an amazing survivor.
