Life for Debbie Tomlinson was not easy growing up. Her mother died of lung cancer when she was young and she moved to Kansas from California with her abusive, alcoholic father. She was beaten often and at the age of 15 she was kicked out of her house. She bounced around from home to home and eventually wound up married and pregnant at the age of 17. The lack of her home life stability coupled with her pregnancy caused her to drop out of high school, a decision she immediately regretted.
