The devastation that a divorce brings on a child is life changing. When I was young I did not understand why all the bad things happened to me. I thought the world was out to get me. After an abusive and negative father, and a depressed mother decided to end a downhill marriage it left my brother, sister, and me confused. At the age of ten it is hard to comprehend why these things happen. Soon after my father signed his rights away, my mother remarried to the man that I call dad today. He changed my life around and taught me everything I know today. The story of how this man changed my life cannot be summarized into a short story but I am deeply grateful to him.
