This week, we meet Markai.  Markai lives with her mother, Sarina, and her sister, Samarra.  All was going well until Markai met James, who also appears to be the bane of her mother’s existence.  It could be because she got pregnant almost immediately after meeting James.  She doesn’t want her daughter to make the same mistakes she did.  So it’s yet another case of “Do as I say, not as I do.”  I do know where she’s coming from though.  She learned from the bad choices she made and doesn’t want her daughter to fall into the same trap.

This week, we meet Emily.  Emily lives with her mother and is well on her way to becoming Suzy Highschooler.  She’s pretty, she’s popular, she’s a majorette, she’s planning on going to college to become a pharmacist…and now she’s pregnant.  When Emily’s mother hears the news, she kicks her daughter out, saying she won’t live under her roof as long as she’s pregnant.  So Emily treks on over to her father, Stacey’s, house where she’s now living with him and her stepmother, Kelly.  Emily’s boyfriend, Daniel, still lives in her old town an hour away, but he visits her on the weekends.
