Hello y’all! LatonaIrwin is here, but you can call me Latona for short. My real name is Carleen
I have been on Foopets for 4 years but in November 2012 and March-ish 2014, I quitted. I couldn’t afford it and I was failing school. Now I’m back for sure since Foopets is now free!
Now I have a strange family. My bloodline family is with my parents and two little brothers. Kevin and Nathan are both twins and they both have autism. It is very hard for me to live with them. Now I have my best friend, but she ended up being my twin nearby. We have everything in common and we do everything together. You just can’t break us apart. Sera does protect me as well even though she 2 months younger than me. I also have another friend that I met here. Dragolicious mean a lot to me. I’ll talk about her later. :)
Now about myself. I am deaf, but I can hear the outside world with the aid of cochlear implants. I have two of them. My right is now 14 years old and my left is fairly new at 4 years old. They are my lifesaver to the outside world. It was something I was born with but, I wasn’t born deaf. I was able to hear when I was just a baby. When i was about 2, that when my hearing was decreasing and I became deaf. I also have a lazy eye on my right. I can’t see anything out of it when both eyes are open. When my left is close, I see not double but almost nothing. It is very hard for me to deal with using only one eye almost 24/7. I just started wearing contacts and I do notice the difference with only my left in. I use my right without knowing.
I love two different bands. One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer are my favorite bands. I been a Directioner since January 1st, 2013 marking my second year in the fandom. 5 Seconds of Summer I been with since April, 2014. I liked them when they toured with One Direction in 2013 but they never hit me till then. I saw them both in concert on August 2nd, 2014 and it was the best day of my life. I was 5 row from the stage and I got to see them both, very close to me. The best part of that night, Harry Styles thanks me in sign language, all because he saw the word “Deaf” on my shirt (I have it on video, ask me if you wanna see it). I will be seeing them again this year. Rock Out With Your Socks Off-August 25th, 2015 On The Road Again-September 3rd, 2015.

January 13th 2011-The person who changed me
Dragolicious is my bestest sister I could ask for. She mean a lot to me
Then we had another visit. To my hometown for an entire week on August 20th, 2012. Closer to the end of summer for both of us. We did everything together. We had two sleepover with Sera which was awesome. We even surprise Sera with Hannah. Let just say, she hates us for that. She also went to Canada for the first time and the first country other than USA. She had a blast! This is my favorite visit that I enjoyed. She only stayed for 6 days until she had to return home and my family had to go to Cedar Point. Then I begged at my parents to go visit her during Christmas break for her 16th birthday and to see her after her back surgery. It was too much for my family and I felt really bad for her.
Then Spring break came along. This was so last minute almost because it was a birthday gift. So my family and I went to Hershey Park on March 29th 2013 and I saw my sister again on March 30th 2013. We spent 2 days there together and she came home with us. She came for my 16th birthday and I was so happy. We did everything and we even had a hotel party. But here the sad part. I got sick just hours from seeing her and I got her sick the next day. It was not a very good week for either of us. My mother even came in the room and saw Hannah and I passed out while my other 3 friends were quietly chatting to themselves. That what happen when you get sick. :( At least we share something. xD Not the best way to see each other but it was worth it. It was my most amazing gift ever! Almost all at the last minutes.
Then we had a very short time of seeing each other. The 4th time we saw each other was July 13th, 2013. We only saw each other for 3 days and way last minute plan. My mother won free tickets to Six Flags and my father wanted to go to the one in NJ. Then he notice it was on the way. So we met up at Dorney Park and spent the afternoon there. Then we headed back to her house to spend the night. Then we left in the morning to go to Six Flags. It was H-O-T! She can’t do well in the heat so she felt terrible. She almost went home. She got better and we had a good time. We spent a night at a hotel and we both went back to our normal house the next day. We planned this all in less than 5 days. It was hard and we would like to do it a month before.
Our very recent visit was December 30th, 2014 through January 3rd, 2015. I came to her hometown and I was her birthday present. It was an amazing time seeing her in over a year. I spend my last two days of 2014 and 3 days of 2015 with my awesome sister. Sera and I flew down to her hometown alone and we had a blast. I hate flying in the plane but it was worth it. I came down for her birthday but I was a day late. She had her birthday party and we caught up with everything in life. I miss her very much. She was also the reason when she randomly found out FooPets is free and we both rejoined again on Foo at the sametime. Brought back so much memories.
