It's A Boy

Our niece had her baby. Just over a week ago. A little boy. She named him Dashawn Anthony. I haven't seen the baby, other than a quick snap shot of him--and what's sad, I'm not sure I'll ever get to see the baby. At least as a newborn. There have been so many problems with this family that we all just tend to keep our distance. What makes me the most sad is the change in this girl! She was doing great, good grades big plans for the future--then suddenly in her Jr. year of high school, she dropped out--then moved out--then moved back in--got pregnant--and then moved out with her family. She turned 18 last January and got about $25K from a trust that was set up after she was mauled by a dog. That money was going to put her through Message Therapy school--or at least pay for some of it. Now all of the money is gone--she's bought a car, new bedroom set and baby "stuff". Not quite the kick off into life we were hoping for! It's all just very sad--I miss the old days!

Wow, that's really sad. It looks like she missed a golden opportunity to get back on the right track. At that age, it's kind of tough to make the right decision when you have 25k in your bank account though. Unfortunate, but maybe she will come around and do something extraordinary with her life. Gotta always hope for the best!
