It all started on 7/26/1972 @8:06 P.M. . I weighed in @ a fat 9.4 lbs. with little hair ( not a lot has changed ) . On just my third day in this world my mom and dad decided that they did not want me . That turned out to be a blessing to me . I am not sure why they left me nor do i care , i am just glad they did . My grandma and grandpa Cantrell decided they would bring me home .They already had raised 7 kids of their own and still had two @ home . I was the 10th kid they raised . They did not have a lot of money but they had plenty of love . I know the money side was tough . My grandpa would do just about any job to make extra money . These were two wonderful people who taught me a lot about life .
I think the first time i ask about who my mom and dad was i was around 4 . I remember my grandpa telling me who my mom and dad are and they were sure that they loved me . I asked this question " then why did they leave me " . He was not sure why they had left me but he continued telling me that he was sure they loved me .Still today i am not buying that whole story . I know that is the right thing to tell a child but the fact is we all love our kids and would not leave them and hope somebody takes them home . Leaving a child is not the way to show them that you love them . I am sure i had more questions but i can not remember a lot from when i was four .
I remember my first year of school was really tough . My grandparents had not adopted me or anything like that . The school was wanting to know who had custody and who was responsible for me . So they had issues getting me started in school . Their last name was Cantrell and mine was Dolan that confused me as a child . There were kids who said man your parents are really old and i remember telling them that they were my grandparents and mom and dad . Sounds a little confusing .Well, the first part of my life was .
I would like to say Happy Birthday To Jana !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tune in for more Tomorrow . God Bless , Have a Great day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
