My Daughter, Amanda Lotts, was born in 1990. At the time, I was 20 years old and her Mother was 18. Despite having parents that were children themselves, she has turned out to be a well-adjusted, smart, and independent young woman. I couldn't be more proud of her.

She grew up in Milwaukee, WI and after graduating from college to become a teacher she sold almost everything and moved to a small island off the coast of Panama.

I have so many wonderful memories of her childhood, too many to recount here. I remember once when she was around 5 years old and her mother married someone that had several children from a previous relationship. Amanda asked me why I never had any more response was "I got it right the first time" -  I think she liked hearing that. =)
