I am 29-year-old single parent with a 10-year-old Son, who for the last 8 years, I have had full custody of. Because I don't know my father and grew up as a troubled youth, statistics would say that there is a small chance that I would be a willing and active father in my son's life, so to have full custody of him is an amazing thing. I was born in Tacoma, Washington. I was around 2 years old, when my father left and forced my mother to take on both roles, she tried her best and made countless sacrifices to move me to ensure that growing up without my father wouldn't mean that I would be influenced by the streets, which is exactly what ended up happening, by the time I was 18 I had already been locked up 4 or 5 times, which eventually led to a 5-year sentence at the ripe age of 18.
