It's nice to get to know you better, Buttercup. What a small world, I grew up in Warren! We were living in Eastpointe (East Detroit) when I was born, but we moved to Warren when I was 2 and I lived there until I got married (my dad is still there). Now, we are living in Eastpointe.

Oh, that's cool. When I was a bay we lived in Detroit. Then, we moved to Macomb County. We moved like 6 times. My older sister when she got married. Moved to Easpointe. I think, she's in Warren now.

Melissa, you are a great fighter and I admire you. You had had really great challenges in your life, but you always pulled to go ahead. I'm sure that once you'll find a nice guy, will marry and have children.

Loved your nieces! All three have so beatiful and fresh smiles...Does the elder ones practice ballet?

I also liked very much your dog and your fish. Your dog has a spunky face, LOL! greenS

Vanesa.

P.S: You are the only one who related to baby Grace. I liked her character , even if she didn't speak much.
