Something unusual about you that few people know: I was in foster care home when I was in the sixth grade. I was abused, sexual abuse and my mom died in front of me in my bedroom on Dec. 5, 1992. My mom and I love each other very much. I had to put her in a rest home in Jan. 13, 1992. I was a great son to my mom, foster home and mother death hard times of my life. These are great years for me, going to UNCW and high school's ball games.
