Her immediately family is composed of three brothers and a sister as her siblings. One of her brothers is married to a white female and the sister has never married but has had relationships and has a white child out of wedlock. The person we are investigating or our subject has two Caucasian children out of wedlock. One of her children is aged 24years while the other is seven years old. The subject has had several recurring problems in her life and these include mental problems, alcoholism and drug abuse. Her family members have their lives described in the following paragraph.

On the parenting and family level, the subject had a typical and normal family characterized by the normal family feuds and had a caring and supportive parenting where the father was strict. Her parents insisted on discipline and spanked the kids when they misbehaved or on accounts of misdemeanor. The subject was very close to her siblings especially her younger sister and older brother. The family owned a home and lived a normal middle class life with no significant changes.
