‘Nettles!’ by Joshua Nettles

Joshua is a 24 year old African-American entrepreneur and family man in Saginaw, MI. He had to go thru a lot before he got to the point he is at now(mother in and out of mental hospital, father doesn’t claim him, several run ins with the law, gang related issues, problems in school, tragic deaths, abuse, misuse). From the time Joshua was born everyone knew he was going to be special. But the potential was quickly threatened by a breakup by his parents(after which his father would go on to forever disown him and his 2 younger brothers) and mental breakdown by his mother(his mother locked her children in her room and walked down the street claiming to be mother Mary). After tragic devastation it seemed Josh had a savior in his grandmother Betty, who adopted him and his 2 brothers after their parents rights were fully terminated. But the stress of raising 3 black boys would be too much for her and would pass away before Joshua was 14… And now they are stuck by themselves to become grown men.
