When I was 19, I had thought about having a baby, but this left my mind fast. I was interested in my theatre career, which was fun, for 6 years. I was a ‘big fish in a small pond,’ and I liked that. I did go to NYC after the 6 years, I auditioned for the part of Vera in “MAME” @ St James Theatre in NYC, and I got the part, BUT, my grandmother was ill, so I flew back to Cali to take care of her for 11 years.
I got married on June 16, 2001 to my best friend, but what happens when you marry your best friend? You lose your friendship.. Luckily enough, we are still very excellent friends.. But, in between, I had a life-threatening surgery at 42 years old.. Time had now come and gone with having a baby. So many years of taking care of Nana, being in a loveless marriage, and now too OLD. No, no adoptions, folks. Just facing the reality of not being able to have babies at 45 years old..
