My grandmother sent my mother to buy a stick of butter. On her way some young boys were standing around, and one boy said I like you and started walking down the road. After that she returned home with the butter and in nine months I was born.
Back in the 40’s & 50’s, young girls had sex with a boy over and over without using condom and in nine months a baby is born. During that time, mothers’ were too young to take care of the baby and the family had to raise the baby, and this is the same thing that happened to my mother; she had two daughters before she got married.
The same things are going on today with young people, and so many babies are in Foster homes.
I learned we don’t know how we came into this world, but I thank God I am here. What a blessing to feel so special; I thank God, my mother and that young black man who is my father. My mother had a second child by the same young man. What happen and the reason she was born into this world? I guess to have a play mate. I know my Mother and Father loved me and my sister.
Years later my mother got married and had many other children. As time passed I had 7 brothers and one more sister. I know my real mother loved us both, and I know God loves us all.
This is the story of a young black girl who grew up in Savannah, Georgia at the time of segregation. She moved to California to make a better life for herself. She talks about her battle with cancer, abuse and her love for the Lord. Frances is eighty-one years young and loving it.
