Well, Santanna, I'll have you know that your "real" mother murdered my real father. I'll admit that he's made his own mistakes, but what he has done didn't warrant that kind of treatment. Your mom could have just walked away and gotten a restraining order if she was that tired of him. Then, she wouldn't be in the mess she's in right now. I believe that maybe your mom realized that after she did what she did. It appears that she realized the trouble you would have been in if she kept you knowing the kind of life she was choosing to live at the time. She must have been thinking about what was going to be best for you in the long-run. It is indeed heart-breaking that she didn't think about what would be best for herself. I respect her for turning herself in, but that doesn't change the fact that she is a criminal who needs to serve the time for the crime that she committed. know that I will be praying for you.
