This week is a very special episode for our listeners. We finally sat down and talked with our brother Cory about what it was like growing up with us and without us. About how being abandoned by our mother several times impacted him as a child and as a father. And how it has impacted the relationship we all have with each other.

Underage Parties

Underage Parties

Growing up we were smoking, drinking, cussing like sailors, having parties, and anything else we wanted to do. Only our parents were the ones buying everything and hosting the parties for us. Our parents thought it was great that we tried to behave like adults and they enjoyed partying with underage kids. In this episode we talk about some of the parties, alcohol poisoning, skinny dipping, and how it impacted us as parents ourselves. We hope you enjoy the shenanigans!

The Last Two Months

The Last Two Months

Two Month Update. It might seem a little early for an update on our lives, since we only launched our podcast two months ago, but we just had to share. After doing our Ancestry DNA test, that we talked about in episode one, we learned that we have different biological fathers. After our first episode aired, we found Desiree’s biological father, and they meet each other for the first time last week! And that’s just the beginning! You’ll have to listen to learn the rest. Thank you for all the love and support.

Growing Up Poor

Growing Up Poor

Episode 9 is all about the crazy stuff we had to do to help pay bills and put food on the table when we were kids. We always had food in our bellies and clothes on our backs, but where it came from and how we obtained it was not the most traditional way to go about things. From stealing, to returning stolen items, lying to churches, manipulating people to help us, and so on.

The Letter

The Letter

*Trigger warning, Graphic Content*

In episode 7, Desiree reads a letter she wrote to our mother 10 years ago. This episode is very graphic, and was a very hard episode for us to get through. Desiree wrote this letter while she was in basic training for the Air Force, and she was at a place in her life where she finally had the courage to get it all off her chest, but also had a lot of anger towards our mother.

Accusations & Fostercare

Original Air Date 5/28/2018

In episode 6 we share how the accusations came out about our step dad and how the days and weeks after impacted everyone in the family. The way these days played out told us just where we stood with our mom and she proved that she would truly stand by him no matter what. It is also the time that our walls went up and it became harder for us to speak our truth.
