Desiree' and Piggle
Hello, my name is Desiree' Foreman. I was born on March 23, 1995. I was born three months premature, so I was in the hospital for the first few months of my life. I was two pounds and twelve ounces in weight, but I was really long. I was on a few different monitors to make sure that all bodily functions were happening as they should. After a few more months, I was off the monitor and I was "healthy as a horse" as they say. Though, after about a month I was back in the hospital again, with another illness. My mom went back into the hospital at the same time as my mother’s grandmother as well. My moms grandma died in the hospital a few days later, and I was released with my mother soon after.

I grew up quickly and I was always energetic. My first word was “momma” and my second word, reportedly from my mother, was “shoes”. When ever I wanted to go outside I’d bring my shoes to my mom and say “shoes” until she took me outside, or on a car ride. My next word was “dad”, so I think my dad was happy about that.

When I was almost two years old, I was attacked by my grandmother’s dog, Renegade. I had been crawling next to his food dish, wanting to play with him. He thought that I wanted to take his food away from him, because he was an abused dog. My grandmother wasn’t very nice to him most of the time. He started to growl at me, and before my parents knew it, they heard me screaming from the kitchen. The dog had picked me up by my head, and shook me. My parents got me away from the dog, and rushed me to the hospital. I ended up getting 52 stitches in my face. I have a scar under my right eye. If I would have been bitted about a half centimeter higher on my face, I would have lost my right eye, too. I have some scars on my forehead and a few more back on my skull and one in my ear.

When I was five years old, I went to Kindergarten. I flew through each grade until second grade. I met my best friend, Onna, then. We’ve been best friends ever since. I went through each grade without a problem and I’m not in tenth grade at Grandville High School.
