Raised and reared with my precious grandmother of Indian decent. Learning to cook, sew, church and reading the Holy Bible. Often traveled to family events. Growing up not totally understanding as to why the separation between my mother and me. I thank God everyday that my grandmother loved me when my mother couldnt.
