“I call them [foster parents]. They ask me about it all the time. I don’t really tell them because I’m ashamed, you know? I tell them ‘Hey I’m doing this,’ and oh well ‘We taught you better than that’ or whatever and ‘We know we’re not your parents, but we taught you better than that.'"
"Which, I mean, it’s really not by choice, the reason why I’m in this situation. It’s just, you know, we grew apart, me and the mother of my kids, we grew apart. I mean looking back I should have done things better as far as not leave like I did. But I felt like it would be better for the kids because, you know, we didn’t get along. I thought that, maybe if I left, maybe we could get back together eventually. But it didn’t work so. It kind of blew up in my face.”
“I’ll eventually tell them. But hopefully I’ll be in a better situation when I do. I’ll be like ‘Hey I’ve been through this,’ and I look back on it and I’ll just kind of chuckle at it. I want to get to that point.”
