Growing up in a broken home is a tough thing for some children to deal with. Some children turn the situation around and do something positive with their life, and some children become the product of their environment. This is can be related to the Nature v. Nurture theory. The story of my life is quite the adventure from start to finish. Even though I did not have a normal life, the history of my life defines me because I have had an amazing journey and it has identified me as an individual. Growing up as a military child, having an absent mother and still creating the childhood memories everyone deserves were not an easy one to have. Becoming a mother at 19 made things even harder and really put my strength and resilience to the test.

My family history was quite the whirlwind from as far...
