thats so cool ! i never really liked being born on this day cause kids were very cruel to me
I am one of four girls and had twin brothers who died between my second sister and me. My grandparents and uncles thought my parents were playing a trick on them when they said I was a girl and were very disappointed when they found out they were wrong.They called me Hank, after Hank Aaron since one of my middle names is Erin, for most of my life. I hated it.

Other than that, most people never commented about my birthday being on April Fool's Day.

This happens, unfortunately, more often than people might think. In the other direction, My Dad had that happen to him because after three boys his mother reallyreallyreally wanted a girl.
Yep. It sure does. My mother and the rest of the family wanted at least one boy in the bunch, especially after my brothers passed at such a young age, but my father wanted girls. He was sad about my brothers, of course, but he really wanted girls.

We do not talk to my mother's side, so I have no idea what is going on there, but on my father's side, he has a sister and four half-brothers. Excluding my brothers, there are 18 children between them. There is one boy and 17 girls. The boys came with us. With just my sisters and me, there are 11 boys and five girls.

hi everyone , as you know my name is Jenn and I am 49 years old and a devoted cat lady.
i was born in jasper texas on april 1st 1973 and later went to live with my grandparents at a early age of about 5 years old . my mom left me behind and didnt explain why until i was roughly in my later 20's . i have been married 3 times in my lifetime and divorced 2 times . i have had to deal with abusive men most of my life and nearly died with the first husband . the second one let his mom walk all over me so i left him too .

i am merely just thinking about a scenario where i would have to find a new place to live and handle life alone ... not something that i would enjoy though. i appreciate all of you and consider us all close friends too
I had to look up crohns disease. How are you physically? It must be really hard to cope with. I had a brain tumor when I was 7 and coma for a month. Still on meds for seizures. I am now 51 with cognitive disabilities so work is hard. Luckily I have a supportive family or I would be living on the streets

When my mother was born, and her father found out she wasn't a boy, he told my grandmother "what good are you?" And didn't want much to do with my mother his entire life, was cruel to her, and favored her sister (my aunt). People are so ignorant. Just be happy the child is healthy.

I would like to leave Texas but my parents are here and I easily get lost. Where I live everything is up and down one road.when my parents pass they are unsure who will take care of me. Glad you are ok
