My father is someone who I respect more than anybody else. He has given up so much for me and my two siblings so that we could be happy even at the expense of his own happiness. He has been the one to bring the family back together in the hardest of times even when others were against him and it was not his place. He inspired us to work hard so that we could succeed and he raised three children while working from home while he had a job that would not usually allow that but he made it happen.

My father grew up in a rather nice town with three older siblings and his mother. His father had left them when my father was very young and his eldest sibling was about eleven. It was a very tragic time. Because of all of this my father grew up in a nice home but everything else was awful.
