George Lopez - May 11th

George Lopez (kinship care) --- comedian, actor, and talk show host. He is known for his ethnically-tinged stand-up and starring in his self-produced ABC sitcom. My 6 year old son loves him in "Rio". When he was two years old, his father left the family and he and his mother moved in with her parents. Then, when he was ten years old, his mother moved out with her new husband to start a new life without him. From then on, Lopez was raised by his maternal grandmother, an emotionally distant woman, herself the product of an abusive childhood and first marriage. As a result, he said, he grew up with little nurturing or encouragement, and a deep yearning ''to be somebody''. I think it's safe to say he's accomplished that.
