: Michael's mother talks about his birth:
My experience with Marlon and Brandon didn't dissuade me from getting pregnant again. The following year August 29, I gave birth to another son. I remember that day well because my water broke while my neighbor Mildred and I were driving over to see the new grammar school under construction, Garhett Elementary. "Oh my God, Mildred, I can't sit in your car like this!" I exclaimed. "Girl, don't worry about it," Mildred said, turning the car around. At my request Mildred drove me home. I called my mother and she and my stepfather drove me to Mercy Hospital. Shortly after I got there, I began having contractions. Later that night, my son was born. "I want to name him," my mother said. I hated her first suggestion: Ronald. "How about Roy, then?" "Oh my gosh, Mama, no." She thought for a little while. "I've got it - MICHAEL." "That's it," I said. By then I was used to seeing my babies born with funny looking heads, so I wasn't alarmed by Michael's. The two other things I remember about him as I held him for the first time were his big brown eyes and his long hands, which reminded me of my father-in-law's. "I bet I was an accident!" Michael has teased. He wasn't.
