My name is TerriWeedman; I was born Sept. 4th, 1991. Let me start by saying a lot has influenced who I am today people as well as events that have flipped my life upside down and molded me into a better, stronger person then who I was a few years ago. I am going to tell you about a few people who I extremely admire, and a couple that have failed me. My mother Jeanne has always raised me on a tight leash and taught me to have morals, ethics, self-respect, and class about myself. She raised me and my older brother by herself for a long time, and we never really got to have the “Wonderful” mother/daughter relationship every little girl wants with her mother, but because of our relationship growing up it has made us so much closer now that I am an adult and have my own child. My mother is a big reason why I am the person I am today, I was always told I’m just like her and I wouldn’t have chosen to have it any other way. My real father Jimmy Severns walked out on me when I was nine years old. This event helped me realize that sometimes blood isn’t thicker than water and blood can’t make someone stay.
Even though my father was never really around the phone call I got left an empty void in my heart when I was only nine. Now my daddy Anthony, the man who raised me, the man who helped me walk, talk, took me to school dances, held me when I was down, the man that took me in when he didn’t have to. He taught me that any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy. Him coming into my life was the best thing that ever happened to me and has made me value family so much more than most people do because I know how it feels to have a broken family, to have the lack of love from one parent, he fills the void in my heart that I explained earlier in this paper. When I was nineteen years old I got pregnant with my first child and unfortunately lost it at nine weeks. Losing a child is the worst experience ever and losing my child showed me life is too short to take things for granted, and that the lifestyle I was living wasn’t worth losing my life over.
Nowadays, raising children has been the concerns of all mankind because this period can determine the rest of their lives later. In fact, it is very essential for everyone to have both mother and father. Therefore, I support the idea that children should be raised in a home with two parents. First of all, a child needs not only the mother but also the father. One of both plays a different role in ...
Before I lost my unborn, I and the father were held at gunpoint while we were lying in bed because of something he had done to someone else and I was caught in the middle. I ended up getting arrested a week after I lost the baby because of the father of my child. After being arrested and sitting in jail for a week in June 2011 on charges that could have cost me 10 years of my life I decided I was ready to settle down, go back to college, change my entire life, and make a better living for myself. I was done going back and forth, being careless like I was invincible and nothing could happen to me. Going to jail flipped my life upside down, and I was ready to change. Last but not least, I found out I was pregnant again on October 18th, 2011.
My life completely stopped while sitting in the clinic listening to the results. I was finally over losing my first child, and was ready to start my life over. I was young and ready to get in school and be a young adult. I was forced to stop, think, and grow up way faster then I planned on doing at that time. I had to change all my plans. I had my daughter Amari Raelynn Tussey on June 15th, 2012. Only a year after losing my first one my heart and soul came into the world, my miracle baby.
Amari has made me a better person, every day she motivates me to finish college here at Brown Mackie and make a better living for me and her. She is my reason for everything I do in life because I know now that life isn’t about me anymore. So to wrap it up with a bow, All of these events and people have molded me into who and what I am today because without meeting these people or having them in my life, or without going through the hard times that I did I wouldn’t have the morals and values that I have today, and I sure wouldn’t be who I am today. I wouldn’t change anything about my life ever, because my life is who I am.
