I was adopted in 1989 at the age of 8 years old By a wonderful love caring family! I am now 32 years old married and a mother of 2 handsome little boys!!! I was called everything under the sun... REJECT LOSER FAG BITCH WHORE(by kids my age) They would say MY PARENTS DIDNT WANT me cuz i was UGLY! And in 1990's NO ONE Knew or UNDERSTOOD BULLYING like they do know!! I was picked on for everything from a hair cut to the clothes i was wearing to the food i was eating for lunch!!! Kids who i thought were "FRIENDS" just befriended me so that they can MAKE FUN of me with the rest of the BULLIES!!! My parents were always supportive and stood by me when ever i had a problem at school but school, teachers and board of Ed DID NOTHING about the bullying and it didnt not stop til i PUNCH a boy in his mouth for making fun of me!!! I STOOD MY GROUND and my parents STOOD behind me 100%! Still to this day i teach my children it is NEVER ok to BULLY others and if u see others being BULLIED do the RIGHT thing and STAND UP and tell an adult teacher/ principal!! Verbal or Physical BULLYING is never ok! My son is in 1st Grade and sees BULLYING everyday and hes a STAND UP KID and tells the right people so things dont continue!!!
