Day 1 of my diary, for privacy and honesty you can just call me China J. I feel that if I used my real name I would hold back or not be honest. So, a little about me, I was born February 25, about 27 years ago. Under circumstances less than perfect, during my birth and childhood. But what can I say, I’m not unique in the overall statistics of America when it relates to African-Americans and our families. But for a short time, I was lucky to have both of my parents in the same home.
Ok my parents, well I and my mom have a common relationship when it comes to mothers and daughter’s these days. Straight up I think she hates me, and maybe always did. My dad, however, loves me, to him I’m still his little girl and his little princess. He has always been there for me when he was able, and the times that he wasn’t able I never held it against him. Let me not forget my stepdad a common drug addict, and suspected pervert. Lastly, I have a huge family I have 3 known sisters on my mom’s side, and 12 additional siblings on my dad’s side of the family.
My life thus far has been crazy, and I feel as a Black woman this is our reality. Not all of us receive the same opportunities in life, and not all of us have the best beginnings. but I’m determined to succeed against all odds. So, make sure you check back often to hear more about my story, and I promise to be honest.
