My name is Irma Walker born on April 21, 1957 at Sharkey County, Mississippi. My Maiden is Irma Mae Rodgers. I come from a big family, and I am the eighth child out of fifteen children. So you can imagine how my life has been. I became a mother before my time, because my mother needed my help. For instance, when you have a lot of sisters and brothers in the family, one person can t do it all. So my job was to help my mother and do what she told me to do. That s how I got my first experience of becoming a parent at a young age. As the year passed, I learned more about responsibilities and how to be a responsible parent. May 18, 1972, I was a young single mother with very little education living with my mother. My mother was having a hard time herself trying to support me and my siblings. My childhood was taken from me because I became a young mother before my time, with some guidance in my life. Back in those days, parents were struggling themselves. I had a set-back in my life, but I didn t give up. I believe in myself, and my children. I got my first job at the age of sixteen, so I can support my child. I m so thankful that my mother didn t put me out on the streets. I worked and went to school at night. For a long time, I tried to get my G.E.D. but it was hard for me to continue. I had no experience in raising children but I made a difference in my life. I achieved some of my goals, now I am a writer. My life inspired me to write this story, It Starts with the Parents .
