12 years ago I was lost. Depressed, addicted, making bad choices. I had been so blessed in my life & I was doing my best to squander it all. Then I met @mrsnickwright and amazingly she agreed to go on a date with me. On our very first date, she brought these two amazing kids. Little did I know that that moment & those kids would change my life, and along with their mom, they'd save my life. Those kids let me be their Dad. They let me adopt them. Damonza would let me coach him in hoops & Diorra would let me (try to) do her hair. Since then, we've added one more, Deanna, who has added even more love to a family already overflowing with it. So, on Father's Day, I always get emotional because folks see our family & think I've done so much for them. But it's the other way around. My family, @mrsnickwright @damonza_ Diorra & Deanna, saved my life, and I'll never be able to pay it back. I love you guys so much.
Nick gradually got out of his depression and gives all the credit to his wife and children. The duo gave birth to another baby girl, Deanna Wright in October 2013. Nick never misses a chance to appreciate how lucky he is to have Danielle as his wife and Dason, Diorra and Deanna as his son and daughters. The family of five lives happily in New York as of 2019.
