I Made A Baby With the Devil: A Black Mom’s Story of Parenting and Domestic Abuse

Post image for I Made A Baby With the Devil: A Black Mom’s Story of Parenting and Domestic Abuse


Many years ago, I met a man who seemed normal, but was actually the devil. Well, not literally the devil.  He was more like the guy the devil would turn to when he needed to be amused or inspired. This escaped me when we met and I fell in love with him. I thought, “Yes! This is who I wish to create a child with.”

I should have seen the red flags—there were plenty. I can see them clearly now, but the thing about red flags is that they wave quietly, like a soft whisper. Red flags should come with loud horns or a Justin Bieber CD—you know, something that makes the soul shudder and ache.  But no, they just wave back and forth like a gentle tropical breeze, caressing the illusion of happy and cloaking poor judgment.

When I was pregnant, my son’s DNA provider promised me that he would stop being verbally and physically abusive. I should have known he was lying when he also promised me world peace and a moon-walking Unicorn. Domestic abusers don’t stop the violence because their women are pregnant—in all-too-many cases, they increase it. But I believed every word he said. It was easier to believe and accept this fantasy instead of facing the life I had created for myself. Read more…

The Industry Cosign hits Palm Springs

The all women’s drive event, “Heels and Wheels” was held in sunny Palm Springs, California and of course, we there. With 11 different vehicles to drive and experience, it was definitely a busy week. From General Motors to Chevrolet, Honda, Dodge and Saab, these manufacturers really rolled out the red carpet to make sure we all had a great time. Each vehicle had quite a few desired features, so to say it was difficult to to narrow it down would be an understatement. In order of my own personal preference, here are the best features of each.

GM Acadia Denali – GM is one of the global sales leaders and judging by all the bells and whistles of this truck, I can see why. My favorite feature? The Windshield Hologram. And, with one touch of the key fob, I can open the rear lift gate with ease. You can’t go wrong with 24 highway mpg and a V6, 3.6L engine.

Volvo C-70 – There’s nothing better than riding around in a convertible…especially in Cali. The C-70’s top goes down fully in 30 seconds. You could go from incognito to all out swag while waiting at a stop light. This beauty has the largest rear seat and trunk of any hardtop convertible. Read more…
