Twelve-year-old Sunshine Lee Sandusky posts her first journal entry.

My name is Sunshine Lee Sandusky.  I am twelve years old; I'll be thirteen years old in a few weeks, just after the Fourth of July.  I will be in the seventh grade come fall; I can't wait!

I was adopted by my family when I was really small, something like around age one or so.  They're the only family I've really ever known.  I am the twin sister to Andre' Joseph, and we both have an older sister, Starlight Melody, who is now nineteen.  We were all born in Vietnam.

I am tall for my age:  I may be nearly thirteen; yet I could easily pass for sixteen or seventeen.  I'm taller than my mom, but not as tall as daddy:  daddy is well over 6 1/2' tall!!  He's nearly 7' tall!  He's huge!!

I am healthy; however, my older sister and my twin brother are not.  Andre' was born with spina bifida (he used to walk on crutches; he now uses a wheelchair to get around), and my sister Star has diabetes; she's had it since she was six.  She has to take shots twice a day and keep an eye on her blood sugar levels plus watch what she eats or else she could get very sick (or end up in the hospital).

I am a typical girl:  I love to talk on the phone, watch television (I love the old shows that were on in the eighties or earlier; my favorites are "Emergency!", "Mulligan's Stew", "Three's Company", "Star Search", "Alice", and "Mork And Mindy"; I also love "Happy Days"), dance, play mandolin in my family's Cajun/country/bluegrass/gospel band, travel, and buy cool looking clothes.  I also love hanging out with my friends and playing baseball or basketball, as well as swim.

People say I am very quiet.  Maybe I am, but that's okay.  That's just me.  Now, if you were to see me with my friends or with my family, then you'd think I was a real chatterbox; I talk all the time!   LOL  Sometimes people say I have a big mouth!  LOL

When I grow up I want to be either a teacher to kids with special needs or work at a zoo, help the animals that are injured or sick.  Or maybe even an actress or singer.  :)  (I have a lot of dreams!)

Well, I am sorry this isn't much of a first entry; I'm new at this journaling thing.  I do hope you understand.  I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Sunshine Lee Sandusky signing off!  Bye!!

~Love, your friend in Tennessee, Sunshine Lee, age 12 3/4 years.  :)

P.S.:  I put a piccy of the cast of "Mulligan's Stew" on my entry; I think that this kind of resembles our family.  And get this:  the littlest kid in the picture shares my name:  her name is Sunshine Lee, too!  (She's all grown up now; they all are.)  Isn't that cool??  I think so!

~S.L. :)

Another family, another story to put the swept under the carpet, so the public don't see it, ailments of children and family loads under the spot light.
Well done.

Sunshine Lee is quite the character. Even though I don't share the same interests as she does (sitcoms), that was when TV was good, I'll give her (and you) that. Now, ER and Emergency!, those were MY favorites. :) Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Enjoyed this story my friend, you've captured the character well. I share the same television interests with Sunshine I too love the old shows...I loved Happy Days, and Emergency I also loved Lavern and Shirley they were a hoot! I always enjoy meeting and reading your characters. You amaze me over and over again with your stories. Hope all is well in Texas, kind of quiet here in the mountains. The rain has ceased for a little while, but we are once again under flash flood warnings...strange weather all across the nation this year. Keeping you in my prayers my friend!
Blessings from Ky.
