The beginning of my life seems like a good place to start my story.
1973 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Parkview Hospital (no longer exists), Isabel was in labor with me. In her own words ” You almost killed me” and trust me, she never let me forget it. Dr. Skovinski was set to deliver me but like I said, I was causing a little trouble for mom. I can say, your Nana did not know how to handle pain, she get a papercut and think you chopped off her arm. Apparently, I had decided somewhere during the labor to turn myself in a very odd position and the doctor had to physically turn me to be born. During the turning process, I have been told countless times that they had broken a few of her ribs but eventually they knocked her out and I was finally delivered. There is a picture of me with a very purple face and I think that was from whatever they did and the contractions. So at 5:25am on Wednesday September 19, 1973, I was born to Isabel and Joseph Stec and they named me Amber Emperatriz Stec.
