Michael was born September 10, 1978, the oldest of five children. He spent his childhood in many homes throughout Los Angeles County, because for much of his childhood he was a ward of the state also known as a “foster child”. In the midst of his many transitions, through hard trials, despite his personal knowledge, God was keeping him.
Michael met and married his wife, Akilah in December 1994. He was sixteen at the time. Starting his life so early there were many things he was not prepared for mostly because he lacked steady parental figures in his life. But let me reiterate, God was keeping him.
In 1995 his first daughter was born. Nancy was an awesome blessing to both of her parents. In 1999 Michael was awarded custody of his 3 younger siblings; DeAnna, Antonyo, and Ryesha, who were in foster care as well. For 10 years he raised loved and taught them just as much as his own daughter. In 2009 Michael’s family was reconciled. His mother who had many struggles in the past was now ready to move forward in life. And although Michael was a grown man for many years his relationship with his mother was restored and his brother and sisters were reunited with her.In 2004 Michael was blessed with his second daughter Kaiyah, and his third daughter Rosaleyn in 2009.
Michael has been and is presently happily married to his high school sweet heart Akilah for 19 years. May God continue to bless and keep him.
