When my mom meant Angel I was about five years old and I was very accepting of him, perhaps it was because I long for a father. We never anticipated that our home would escalate as time pass by, and create the fear that began to take over our home. Our home wasn’t as nice as Colorado, but it still had trees, but the trees did not move as gracefully as the trees in Colorado nor did the sun shine the same. My mom had raise me to be an independent women because, “you can’t only count on a man all the time” she would say. “There will be times when he would be there and next he can be gone, that is why it is very important to be an independent woman and count on yourself to take care of yourself”, she continues, “Don’t get me wrong, it is good…show more content…
Naïve some may say but our relationship hasn’t been like any other, for we had to fight for our relationship from my dad (stepdad) who believe, none of his girls should date during school. First of all, we started as friends who knew that like each other and was getting to know each other since the day we first start talking after church.
