“I’m a single mother of two, from a small town in Ohio. My son is seventeen and my daughter is ten. I grew up in a good family. We were a middle-class, average, and happy family. I lived on a farm until I was fourteen so my days were spent riding horses, playing with the cats in the barn and preparing for the county fair every year. I loved showing horses, pigs, rabbits and one year I presented my dog in a dog obedience show.”
