Episode 1: Jourdan Watts - Early Life and What Lead to Her Being a Single Mom
In this episode, you will hear from the host, Jourdan Watts. She talks a little bit about how she grew up. Her parents divorced when she was a baby. Her dad got custody of her and then married a 16 year old girl. That 16 year old girl raised Jourdan and has the title of "bonus-mom" throughout the show to avoid confusion between her and Jourdan's bio mom.
Jourdan's mom got into some trouble with drugs when Jourdan was in 5th grade. That turned Jourdan's world upside down. Also, Jourdan had been an only child at her dad's house and finally her dad and bonus-mom had their own baby. At that time, Jourdan felt like she didn't matter anymore.
In 8th grade, Jourdan met her first love. They would date all through 8th grade, all four years of High School and about two years after high school. During this time, Jourdan got pregnant her Senior year of High School. When her son was about 19 months, Jourdan made the hard decision to leave.
