I can't believe my first child was born 20 years ago today and my second was born 2 years ago!! How far apart are your kids?
Ok. I can't keep up with the replies.
The 20 year old is my brother. I started raising him, as well as my sisters when I was 12 years old. He was about 3 months old, my sisters were 6 and 3 at the time. My father was a deadbeat dad and my brother's father was a deadbeat dad. My sister's father was and still is not, but he only had visitation of every other weekend. My mom was a functioning alcoholic that worked a really crazy schedule. I went to school and came home to take care of 3 kids. When I was 27 my mom passed away of liver failure and I got full custody of my brother, who was 15 at the time. No I didn't not give birth to him, but all other manners he is my kid.
My DD was born 14 days before my brother's 18th birthday and 6 days after mine.
