“My mother’s bipolar, and my father’s an alcoholic and an addict.  He takes what he pleases and he offers nothing.  No money, no support.  I’ve done what I could to help raise my siblings.  I wish I could have done more.  I’m not asking for your pity or you admiration.  I just want to be able to give these kids everything that they deserve, because they’re great kids and they deserve better.
