|Bio and Links|
My name is John Sterling. I was not born with that name however because I was adopted. I was born Dallas Curt ?. (I have limited info on the subject.) I have 2 step-sisters on my mothers side named Marinda & Angela. I have one step-sister an my fathers side. I do not know her name. I grew up with the term adoption so it holds no stigma for me. I hope to meet my "Birth family" but I will not search untill I have no family left. I grew up with good parents. No real emotional bond untill my father got sick in 2002. I grew up with every advantige otherwise. At the age of 6 I was diagnosed ADD. They had this new drug Ritalin. I was one of the first kids on it. Now in adulthood I have problems with memory which I believe is from 10 years of the drug. Dicipline cured my ADD. Not drugs. The Boy Scouts started my dicipline lessons. Senior year of high school, I tried smoking pot. I destroyed my schooling and the teenage years of hell started. I never hurt anyone personaly (thank god!) and have nothing on my record (by some miracle) The fall after graduating high school I needed direction. I knew if I stayed around the same people and the same area I'd end up as that homeless guy who hangs around 7-11. I joined the U.S.Navy and spent 2 years serving my country. (And had some fun too!) I sailed to Europe, Israel and Africa. Central America and the Virgin Islands were a blast! After I got home I decided to give myself 10 years to make a living at something I love. Photography. I spent 9 years photographing children & animals. Quite a challenge. I traveled from Vermont to Maryland with 7 different companies.|
