Tony P.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for all the visits and traffic we have been having to RAFN. Today I am sitting down with Tony P.

What was it like being raised by a single mom?

"It was difficult for all of us. Definitely for my mom because she had to raise a set of triplets all by herself. My mom worked all the time or she was visiting my brother who was in a mental institution. I felt neglected by both my parents."

Tony now that you have a little girl, what do you want to do differently?

"I want to be there for my daughter, I'm not going to let anyone stop me. I will do all I can to see my daughter. Fortunately since my daughter has been born I have been sober. She has never had to witness my immaturity and addiction. I have never met my child. The mother of my child doesn't want anything to do with me despite me getting help for my addiction. She doesn't care about the help I get or not. One of the worst things that I have ever gone through, But I trust in God and know that I will be in her life."
