They are terrible children, mostly because of their living situation, but were constantly being expelled from school, the bus, and banned from certain places for shoplifting. The cherry on top being the murder of small animals, cats especially, was all fabricated. Believe me, I wish it was. Finding out about my mom’s various sexual assaults and the abuse she endured only cemented my feelings. The fact that she knew about it, and kept those men in her home anyways sickens me to this day. It explains so much about my mom that I couldn’t comprehend at a younger age.
