An Interactive Memoir
Jerry Ross, the Painter

Genessa, Katherine, and Rachel

When I started living with Angela, I became an instant step-dad to Genessa. I was thrilled play that role having waited far too long to start a family. Pamela had no interest in having children and so there was nothing to show for our 8 year relationship. At first, Genessa was seemed resentful of me having replaced her father Joseph as the father figure. On our first meeting, she threw several ball bearings at me (they missed) and was acting out. But gradually we bonded.
