Dear Journal~

Jennifer Kaylin here. Sorry if I haven't written in here in so long; things have been happening at breakneck speed; they are finally starting to settle down somewhat.

I have some bad news: I am no longer seeing my (former) partner, Terri Leroi. Yeah, she and I parted ways; I am now alone again. I am not looking for anyone at the present time; too much of a hassle, and I am trying to grow in my faith as a Christian.

I have been going to church on a regular basis; I go every Sunday. I am now living with my in-laws, who have taken me in. They are very nice, especially since I have accepted Jesus as my saviour. My son, An'twon, who is now six-and-a-half, is with us; he's growing like a weed. He's going to be fairly tall; that is unusual because most people with spina bifida are quite short.

Ant has been a good little boy, but he misses his other mommy. I miss Terri too, but she keeps trying to go back to the old ways; she's been seeing another woman on the slide behind my back; I got furious, so I broke up with her.

I am still plenty enough angry, but I am trying to keep my mind busy by spending time with the Word, praying to God, busying myself with church, my computer, my work. That's another thing. I am working again; I am working in a store, and it's a lot different than my old job, which was construction.

I am not so sure whether I like working in a store; it's too boring a lot of the time, and I feel funny dealing with people because all they do is flap their jaws about me behind my back or stare at me (or my wheelchair). I feel embarrassed; it's at times like this when I wish I wasn't paralyzed.

It's at times like this when I wish I could just rise from my wheelchair and walk, but that's not about to happen--unless a miracle happens or if Jesus comes to take His Children to Heaven, to be with Him forever.

I have been trying to contact my friend, Louisiana Sandusky, but she's either not home or is indisposed somehow. I know she's pregnant with twin boys; I pray nothing's happened to her. I will have to try to e-mail her or call her again later on, after I get off of here.

I have also been trying to contact my step sister Eloise. I just found out about her a few months back (she was the step daughter of my dad; I never knew she even existed until she wrote me a letter that still has me reeling in shock), but alas: no dice. No answer at her place either. She gave me a phone number, but I don't think it's the right one or a working number. All I get is the darn operator or the busy signal. It's very annoying!

I haven't met El yet, but I hear she's as gay as I was. Yes, she's a lesbian, just like I was before I "went straight". She has a partner named Yvette, and I know she's sixteen years younger than I am, but not much more than that. I also know that El lives in Florida, near Miami/Dade Beach, and that she's a waitress at a Latino dance club.

I did some research on the Internet; this was how I found out about Eloise.

Well, not much else is new other than what I wrote above. I am sorry this is so boring, but I am feeling conflicting emotions right now, and I am still having problems dealing with Terri's and my recent parting as well as finding out about my stepsister Eloise. I just wonder what Ma and Pa are going to think once they find out about Eloise---

Take care and God bless!

~Jennifer Kaylin. :(

There are storytellers and there are writers that touch the raw scence of our inner being.
One is amazed discovering that the world is not an big Colgate smile but also holding lives that are trying to smile.
Great work.
