Now that my mother was remarried, we no longer qualified for low-income housing, so my mom and new dad bought a 3 bedroom house in Taylor, Mi. Tamara, my step-sister, got her own room, and my sister, Taunya and I still had to share a room. I remember the house sat on a huge lot. We had a pool and a giant sandbox where my little brother and I played. All 3 of us girls hated the Taylor schools. I would purposely miss the bus so that I could stay home from school.
