FC: My Life...In A Book
1: Meet the parents! Jody Dady and Dale Richardson.
2: And the Kids... Janina, Hopefull, Rebecca, Beth and Heaven.
3: Lets start out with Heaven at her house on Lowell View.
4: What started out as a innocent little girl who did not have many friends, took a chance at life and soon realized its not as easy as it is set out to be.
5: With her mom leaving shortly after, Heaven had to cope and she coped with two things, cutting and Fee Fee Tuesday.
6: It was here that Heaven learned that she had a talent for not much, but for picking up a camera.
7: And also a pad and pencil, for it was her second love away from the camera.
8: She did not have many friends but her "Friends" then were....Noelani Nichols... | The one who never left her side once...Rebecca June Richardson... | And Susan Chulski, who was there for her to guide her, kind of as a mom figure.
9: The escapes for Heaven were simple, her room. And she spent more time in that room than she did talking to anyone or anything. It was her safe place. | She loved her room more than anything but she had to move. So now to destination number 2!
10: Welcome to 4 Mile! Where it smelled like country and was miles away from anyone or anything.
11: Heaven rarely saw her mom, and it was heartbreaking when Heaven called quits to the relationship because things just went downhill from there.
12: Friends got scarce as Heaven had to find new ways to cope with the fact thinks were not going in the direction anyone wanted them to... | The best thing that she came up with was cutting, the worst possible thing that Heaven discovered and yet, was addicted to.
13: But one thing that Heaven did know was that Becca made everything worth it. In front of the camera or not Becca was there for the long run.
14: She did have some good moments too, but those were very rare. | Senior year came around faster than expected and Heaven had to go with the flow. | Randalyne Westbrook was there and was the new woman in her life. But Heaven could not stay happy for long.
15: Cutting and destructing herself was something Heaven had always known... | Sometimes it would not even be her fault, but she knew what needed to happen, she needed to leave...
16: Welcome to destination number 3! Home of Lindsay and Eric Bredin.
17: With kids, Teige and Finn. All was well with Heaven for about two months before she realizes she was the problem and she needed help. Moving out was not the only answer.
18: She did find one thing that made her cope before going to Forest View and switching homes again, Wheat thins. Even the small things help.
19: Destination number 4! Home of Molly, Charlie and Mary Jo Doering. | Not the ideal place, but it was the best thing for a girl who did not want to come home. | Not that Heaven knew what home was anymore but she was thankful enough.
20: She did end up going to a dance or two along the long journey we like to call life. Meeting friends such as Brittany, Tina, and Nick.
21: But through it all she did meet one girl who became her best friend, the one who listened and helped Heaven through the rough patches that she was going through...Amanda Lynn Ward.
22: Girls being girls is what its called. And Heaven had the most fun when Mandy was around.
23: Getting Fee Fee back in her arms meant a lot but one thing Heaven missed and still misses to this day...Rebecca
25: She still of course, misses her family as she writes, drawes and crackes jokes to make someone's day.
26: She now currently is still struggling with depression, cutting and being bulimic but 500 scars later means one thing, Thats Heaven Richardson for ya.
