My name is Kimberly Battles. I was born May 13, 1972 in Oakland Ca. My Mother had me when she was 18 years old.On my birth certificate Arthur Battles signed as my father.
My mother had already had a son witha man named Andre Allen. When My mothe got pregnant with me she was in a relationship with arthur. My mom got back with Andre when she was pregnant with me and told him I belonged to Arthur. Arthur was present at the hospital on the day I was born and signed the birth certificate. Andre had deceided to take responsibility for me. But he never really took responsibility.
I have always seen the name, Arthur Battles on my birth certificate and I always thought that it was a young game that my mom had played with Andre(the one I always called dad)to hurt him by putting another mans name on my birth certificate. I just learned that it was not a game I asked my grandmother(Andre's mom) and My mother (who has been in mental institutions since I was 5) if Arthur was my real father and they both told me yes. Soon after I asked Andre and he said yes as well. That was just last year in Nov. 2007
I have lived a lie for 36 years. Being raised by Andre's family..who was never my family. He has been in prison all my life so him taking respomsibility for me was a total joke.Arthur Battles Born in Oklahoma or Alabama. He is probably about 60-65 years old. I live in Los Angeles Ca.
