I met my husband when we were teenagers. We had both had reasonably difficult childhoods. His was much harder than mine. He was removed from his mother’s care, separated from his baby brother (who was adopted off to a family individually), moved from foster home to foster home and was even abused at times, yet he has an eternally optimistic attitude. He is a very “glass is half full, silver lining” kind of guy. He has always inspired me to focus on the good things in life.
