i was raised by my Mom and stepdad. i am thankful thati had parents that made us sit down as a famy for.dinner and who attended every football game i marched with the.band in. they helped when we really needed it but let us learn for ourselves. they taught us manners and to respect our elders. i still say yes mam and will not put my elbows on a table. i lost my dad ten years ago this year tragically and unexpectedly and i miss him terribly, but to illustrate the kind of man he wa-he told myblittle brother, his only biological child, he told.him one day when.we were growing up, and i quote "son, you are my only biological.child, but don't think for a second that you are any better than those two girls in there." he was referring to my sister and i. i have been able to take what he taught me and apply it to raising my own step.children....i was very lucky
