My dad met my mom while he was an American sailor stationed on Rhodes, Greece, where he met, dated, married my mother. I was conceived on Rhodes, born in Libya, Tripoli, grew up mostly in the states. My father used to lovingly call me half-breed when I was young. I think it helped me. I think it made me more open-minded.
I grew up American yet my mom was very Greek...so they are both part of me.
It makes me different.:-)
And I think special.
The more I learn about both sides, the more I learn of myself.
My father is Baptist. My mother is Greek orthodox.
I am very fortunate.
