This request is a response to ESSENCE article
According to what was told to me: I am the youngest out of five children. Shanice; Jamik; Jamal and Andre( Andre Blake lives with me.) Andre and I have the same mother and father. The rest of us have different fathers. My sisters last name is Miller. Before my father died he told me that one of my other brothers is a NY city cop and his last name is Dejesus, Jamik. My father also told me that there was a picture of all of us together at my mothers funeral. They're are all aware of my existence. I just was too young to remember any of them.
I only know of my fathers side of the family which is slowly decreasing. My father passed on Oct.12th of 2008, my uncle passed in 2007, then my aunt passed in Dec of 2008. I literally have only my brother who lives with me at the moment( Andre Blake). I'm getting emotional typing this cause I've been so eager on finding my family...
This will be a blessing if you can link me to my sister. I assume that she'll know where the rest of everyone is...I was raised by my fathers mother Mary Williams in Jamaica, Queens, NY. Shanice use to come and take Andre to the park.
Thank you for your time. I anxiously await your response
