    Is there a particular childhood event that you feel help to shape who you are today?

    I grew up on a pig farm and had the opportunity to bottle feed a couple of runt piglets.  I believe that I would not be in the field I am now in if it weren't for the fact that my family instilled the love of animals in me at a very young age.

    I don't think there really was one particular event but many that shaped me.  I came from a pretty chaotic childhood filled with moving a lot, loss, mental illness, addiction, drugs/alcohol and violence. Exposed to just over all unhealthy behavior.  Which I think has made me want to stay as far a way from that in my personal life now as an adult.
    However, I do have a strong drive to help people in need.  I know how it feels to to be in the mix of all those problems.  I have great compassion and as long as it doesn't come into my home around my children I do try to help.  I do agree with you that childhood events do shape who you are but as in my case does not give anyone the right to hide behind that and treat others badly.

    I can say it was the family bond that help me where I am now. I grew up in loving family a close tied relationship and all of the time of my life they are always in my side. I got confidence, courage and faith.
