My name is Arthur, I am 32 years old. I live in a small town called Bradford, Pa. I grew up in the lower westside of Erie, Pa. I have also lived in Lexington, Ky for several years between 1999 and 2006.
I have 3 children that I love very much. A 15 year old son and a 14 year old daughter, whom both were adopted at an early age. I love them and miss them so very much. I will never forget them. The boy wasn't mine, but I claimed him as mine since I met his mother when she was only 3 months pregnant. I still love him like my own. I also have a 10 year old son that is currently living with me. His name is Austin Jay Crooks. He is my world. I hope I never go through what I went through with the other 2 children. I don't think I can go through that again. I am still hurt very badly from that experience.
I hope to one day meet my other children. They were adopted by a great family who could have done more for them at the time than I could have. I don't want to disrupt their family, so I am not trying to confront them with the news, I just hope for the day they look for me. I would like nothing more than to hold them and tell them stories about old times and new. I would love to have the opportunity to explain to them what we all went through and why they had been taken from me.
I have a rocky past, but I have matured and broke through the struggle. I feel that I have the knowledge and faith today that I didn't have 10 years ago. I am very greatful for that and I do everything I can to stay on the right path from now on.
Even when the sky is gray I still find a way to smile, laugh, and play.
