22 | Carol
Caring for Carol Carol says she is the only person she knows that was the subject of a court case as a child. At the time, her parents were fighting and eventually filed for divorce. So, custody needed to be sorted out... especially since divorce wasn’t as common then as it is today. One of her uncles from her fathers side of the family was a lawyer, and he defended her father in court. Eventually, her father was awarded custody of Carol, but subsequently left Carol in the care of her grandmother. Carol joked that she “must be the opposite of the Bing Crosby hit ‘You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby’”, humorously implying that she must have been a terrible baby.
