I was born a Sag … December 15, 1982. I didn’t have the most ideal upbringing. My early childhood consisted of living on the street with my mother and 5 other siblings. My mother didn’t have the best life for us but she was also dealt a bad hand herself. I was taken from her and placed in the foster care system at 4 years old. I was placed in a foster home with 2 of the most amazing people in my life, Mama and Daddy White. I still remember that first meal my 2 younger brothers, sister, and I had; Hot dogs with juice and cookies.
To be quite honest, while I was growing up I never knew how disadvantaged I was. I mean that was just life for me and I didn’t know any different. I did have an incredible God given ability. This was a high degree of self-efficacy. It was so high, it’s actually what my foster mother told the newspaper about me when they ran an article on us:
Mark loves to read, and has a healthy self image that helps him approach most tasks. “He thinks he’s No. 1,” says Ann, ” He thinks he can do anything.”

After it was all said and done, they raised over 221 foster children who were mostly abused or had disabilities.
I have vague memories of my mother back then but I got to meet her when I was 29 years old before she died 2 years later. I grew up in foster homes in Austin, TX. My older sister Tameka took care of us while I followed my older brother Reggie around until Child Protective Services took us and split us from them. However, for the majority of my life I stayed in the same foster homes with my younger sister Ariel, and younger twin brothers Adam and Alan. My foster parents, Momma White and Daddy White, were an older couple that raised 221 foster kids.
