066 – I’ve Had A Lot Thrown At Me, But I’m A Happy Human Being

Rick’s birthmother relinquished him into foster care where he was terrorized as a toddler. He was eventually adopted around age 6 but always felt like an outsider. At 16 years old he reunited with his maternal family who informed him his mother was institutionalized for paranoid schizophrenia. Their reunion didn’t go at all how he had hoped. When he found his birth father, the man was incarcerated but welcoming. Eventually, Rick distanced himself from his birth father and when he tried to reconnect, it was too late.

    I love you so much! No matter where life take you now i am always here now. You are such a resemblance of everything good that our father was. His voice, his musical talents, you also have more a free spirit just like him. The time i have got to apend with you i already feel so close and connected to you because you are so much like him (our father). I love you brother.
