My Infinity Game

I was 28 years old when I became a nuclear family of one, with two deceased parents.

A common reaction I receive — from both friend and stranger — is pure wonder: How in the world did you go through that? There is no way I could do that.

My purpose of writing this blog is to answer that question. I’ll share my thoughts as they relate to being parentless at a young age and my experiences being an exception to the proverbial rule of nuclear family. During the process, I’d like to search for other exceptions. Not only nuclear families of one, but people who have suffered hardships that leave them feeling like a sample size of one. I believe that the commentary wrapped around our stories will resonate, closing the distance of wonder and fear, and empowering others to confront being the exception with strength.
