Personal Narrative: My First Step Sister

Superior Essays
My father and his new girlfriend, Karen, got together 1 month after my mom and dad split up. I really liked Karen to start with. She made sure she didn’t steal our dad from us. She did everything she should, but that would soon change. Karen brought two new step-brothers and one step-sister into my life. Two of my new step-siblings had already graduated high school and lived out of state. Tony was in his late twenties, lived in Wisconsin, and had two children, Kaylee and Jayden. I really liked Tony. He always treated my sister and I as family, and I really respected that. However, Tyna lived in Missouri and also had two children named Alikai and Kale. But, there was one more step-brother named Jerod, who was 16 at the time and still lived with …show more content…
At first I did not like the thought of another man in my life, thinking he would try to replace my dad. My mother soon introduced us to Kevin, and I wasn’t sure if I really liked him or not. My sister and I started spending more and more time with Kevin, and he started to grow on me. Later, we were introduced to Kevin’s daughter, Ashley. Ashley first struck me as an outgoing girl with an attitude that she was definitely not trying to hide. This part of my memory is sort of blurry, but I can recall not liking Ashley. On October 11, 2012, she gave birth to an amazing little girl by the name of Aurora Sky Warnke. I fell in love with her the first time I ever met her. After Ashley and I started getting to know each other better, I started liking her. I began to claim her as my step sister, even though my mother and Kevin weren’t married. Ashley began trusting me around Aurora, and my new niece and I developed a bond that can not be broken. A while after that, I began meeting the rest of Kevin’s family. I met his mom, who has the wildest personality I have ever seen, not to mention she absolutely loves to talk. I also met his father, who is a shy man that speaks only when his opinion needs to be heard. What a great couple, right? I also met Kevin’s son, Dustin, and Dustin’s wife, Vina. Dustin was a bit like his grandfather with his absence of words. Vina had an attitude worse than Ashley’s, and I wasn’t much for being around that kind of a person. Therefore, I wasn’t a fan of Vina. I then met Kevin’s sister, Karla, her husband, Kent, and their three troubled daughters, Karissa, who was 16, Jessica, who was 14, and Alisha, who was 13. Even through all of their hot mess, I still claimed them as family. Adjusting to having all of these crazy strangers as a part of my life has been a wild rollercoaster, but has created amazing life altering
