Deon, and Karen always knew they wanted a large family.
They met over 21 years ago at Club Pure on the Famous Woodward Ave in downtown Detroit. Deon, a native to Detroit, and Karen, a Native to Kingstree, SC, were both instantly attracted to each other. Deon, a Detroit Public School Bus Driver and Real Estate Investor, was smitten with the young and vibrant Karen who was a flight attendant at the time. Who would have known the two would face so many challenges as they sought out to build a family.
