my little sister Baby needs anything like money or just something if I have it, its hers. If I don't have it, I will try my hardest to get it for her. Even with my big sister I still try to give, but she's most likely the one who gives me money when I need it! If my Mom or Dad doesn't have it, I know I can always go and ask my big sister Vanes¬sa. My parents are the two most important people in the world. I know lots of times I can seem pretty ungrateful but I appreciate everything they have done for me. The number one thing that I really appreciate the most and I don't know if they know this but it's how they both brought me into this world. The number two thing is how every time I get in trou¬ble or do something stupid, like I always do, they're always on my side, no matter if I'm right or wrong,they always have my back to the fullest.
Another person I really appreciate is my big brother Bobbie. He passed away a year ago, but when he was here he always helped me whenever I got myself into trouble. He always did a good job of being a big brother and I had no complaints. He may not be here anymore, but I know sometimes when I'm having trouble, need help and all of a sudden the answer to my troubles somehow just pops up, it's him looking down on me, helping me out.
My family may not be perfect and neither am I, but I tell you what, you will never find another family quite like mine.
