"When people see Samantha and Netta I want them to see children that are well taken care of, well-mannered, despite the poverty and stuff that they are living in and around. I want them to see educated children. That is one of the reasons why I don't let them play outside, out front, because I want people to see that I don't just let them run up and down the street with all that is going on, the drug activity and the folks sitting on their front porches drinking. I want people to see them for more than that."
