Family. The people that are there for you no matter what. We might not share blood, or last names, but we share a bond and a love that can't be severed through distance, or time, or the toughest adversity. A family listens, supports, and uplifts. My family is a mixture of relatives and friends. When tragedy strikes, your family is the ones who are there to help you pick up the pieces. This is how I determined who would be on this page. My family has loved and supported me through so much.
Melissa Day - She's my mom, who I live with currently. She wasn't always around when I was younger, but now she's come back and is making up for lost time. She's been there for me through some of the hardest couple of months of my life, and is helping me to get out of these situations.
Joel McCarthy - Ever since I was a little kid, my dad was my best friend. We were so close and told each other everything. Unfortunately, we haven't spoken since December, but by next spring I hope to see him again. We'll always have that bond though, and I am confident that we can become close again soon..
Hope Finch - she's my half sister on my moms side. She lives with my aunt in St. Louis, and she's 13! I don't get to see her too often, but when I do, it's like she never left :) She's in sixth grade and loves horses.
Capernia McCarthy - she's my half sister on my dads side. She lives with my stepmom in Melbourne, and she's 6! She's in first grade. I don't see her very often either, but I lived with her the first 6 years of her life. I can't wait to see her again soon!
My Paternal Grandparents
Bob McCarthy - he's probably one of my favorite people in the whole world! He's the man that everyone absolutely loves. He's kind, compassionate, loving, and insightful.
Jan McCarthy - she's my mommy. My dad raised me as a single father for nine years, but she's the one that really took care of me. I don't get to see either of them very often within the last few months, but they always have a special place as my second pair of parents :)
My Great Grandparents
Sandy and Verna Sloan - My mom and I live with and take care of them. They both have dementia, but they're sweethearts and they mean the world to me.
My Best Friends -
Taylor McCarthy!!! She's also my cousin, but we are so close. She's a sister to me,! She's beautiful, smart, creative, and talented! She's definitely going places!
Shannon Mynheir - This girl has helped me through so much. I have had some pretty bad things happen, and through it all, when the smoke cleared, she was th e only one left. She's so pretty and brilliant and has such a caring heart.
