A. Unique Wardaw Soc 204 4/20/10 Family project paper The demographic data for my family of ten is as follows, the first generation consists of Iris Wardlaw, Curtis Logan and Bonny Wardlaw. The second generation includes Regina Wardlaw, Rickie Hines, Jerome Carson, Victor Wood, Candy and Eddie McEntrye and Curtis Logan Jr. The third generation contains Me, Unique Wardlaw, Rickie Wardlaw, Brittany Jones, Edmund McEntrye, Jasmine McEntrye, and Jamund McEntrye and the last and final generation only encloses Amiya Wardlaw.

As you will see, there had also been withdrawn information about my two deceased family members simply because it is a sensitive topic for my family to converse about. No one ever brings up these members in conversation because everyone knows to avoid this topic or else family time would not go as smoothly as everyone has planned. If any of the deceased family member’s names is brought up upon family occasions, there would be immediate silence and awkwardness brought upon the gathering.

During the time that I stayed in intensive care, my grandmother and I, whom I call Mama Iris, grew a special bond. With me being the first born of my mother’s, she did not know how to handle such a fragile baby, which allowed Mama Iris time to step in and take control. Mama Iris visited me in the hospital every single day while I was in intensive care, and she feed and rocked me to sleep every night. I was her heart, her third grandbaby and she even gave me my middle name, Unique. When I was finally big enough to go home, weighing five pounds, my mother and I went to go live with my grandparents, Mama Iris and Bonny Wardlaw, whom I call Papa. While living with my grandparents we went to Forest City, NC every weekend to visit with my extended family members, Eddie and Candy McEntyre, whom are my aunt and uncle. While in Forest City
