My family: amazing, crazy, funny, weird, unusual, out of the ordinary and mine. Though my family isn't normal, I would not exchange them for anything in the world.
I have never seen my parents together, so I guess I never really had a chance to feel about their not being together. I am my mother’s first, and my father’s last… at least I think so. I was a ¨surprise¨ as mother likes to put it. She was 18 when she had me and my father was 34. Big age difference, 16 years to be exact.
My parents had broken up before they knew I existed, so it was difficult for them to understand, from what I know. Though I'm not positive, I'm pretty sure that I'm the result of an affair.
