The human being is a product of the people in their lives and their surroundings. It might not matter who raises you as much as it matters how they raised you. I was fortunate to have been raised by two moms who I am proud of for the role they played in shaping my life and choices. My younger years were challenging because I felt the void of not having a male figure in my life. My male friends who had a mom and dad were different from me. On Friday Family Movie Night they watched Terminator, while I watched The Princess Diaries. They wore athletic shorts and t-shirts while I wore polo shirts and khaki pants.
