I, Michelle L Anderson, was born into a blended (Lovelogical®) family.
My mother, Phyllis, had four children from a previous marriage. My father, Lonnie, raised my siblings with the same fatherly love given to me.
I did not even realize my daddy was not my siblings’ biological father until I was about 7 or 8. I found out because I overheard a conversation and asked questions. My mother informed me that we were brother and sister whether or not we had the same biological father. We were not half of anything. My father was and will always be ‘Daddy’. There were no step-parents in our home because no one was being stepped on in any way.
Little did I know my mother’s wise statement would become my first experience with the concept of Lovelogical. My home, my family, was a Lovelogical union.
My family was filled with problems and issues just like any other family. However, we had an overabundance of love.
When my siblings reached adulthood and moved on to their lives our house felt empty. My mother decided to utilize the space and bedrooms to help others.
At first, momma opened a licensed daycare center with some of the kids and their parents feeling like family. My mother found out that one of our daycare kids was being taken away from her parents. The reason I do not remember. Somehow the situation encouraged my mother to start the process of opening our home to foster children.
Through the years we had many foster children join our household. Some stayed for a brief period of time. Others long enough to learn life lessons, which stayed with them until adulthood. Some stories were joyful and others sad. Either way, their lives changed through the love received within my parents’ home and my mother’s arms.
There are so many aspects of Lovelogical throughout my life from birth to present day. I look forward to sharing these stories with you in this blog. I also can’t wait to hear and share many of yours.
