Raven's mommy and daddy.
Allison Jay Thomas- Afro German American. 55 now.
Sebastian Robin Thomas- French American. 56 now.
They met in high school French class. Sebastian had just moved with his family from Versailes, France to America. He had taken English before leaving so at least the language gap wasn't too bad for him. Now he was 16 and new to American High school and it's odd rules.
Allison, on the other hand, had been living in America since she was twelve. Prior she'd been living with her family in Berlin,Germany. She was well used to American customs by the time she was 15 and met Sebastian.
It was love at first sight for them. (Unlike Alec and Kira, where Kira stalked Alec until he kinda started liking her.) Soon as Allison turned 18 Seb proposed and they have been happily married ever sence, raising two beautiful boys together and growing more in love each day.
Allison originally wanted to be a chef- but the sudden adoption of their nephew Salvador kinda warped they're planned schedule. It was ok, they were still able to work around it. When he was six and starting all day school they both felt like they could go a little further into their careers when, surprise surprise, Allison got pregnant with Raven.
Seb went to school and work to become a French, English, and Italian teacher. With his wife's support he was able to complete his courses, and with his support she completed hers. But with two children now they really had to work a schedule. So while one child was at school and the baby at home- of course- Seb worked at his college and Allison stayed home. When he was off she worked as a cook during afternoon to night shifts. That lasted about two years, by that point Alli was 31 and Seb 32. So she figured she'd just be a stay at home mom and wife. She didn't see it as her giving up on her dreams, just fulfilling them in a more pleasing way.
They were/are great parents. Always talking with eachother and their children. Making sure they at least have one meal together a day. Salvador never felt like anything less than their son because he isn't. They made sure to always be as fair as possible and make sure the kids had everything they needed, without neglecting eachother. And yes, they pampered those boys to death- but made sure they both took home ec in high school so they weren't overly handicapped by them XD.
They must've done a good job because even now that their boys are out of the house they still call, ask for advice, come visit, pay some of their bills -without mommy and daddy's permission or want-. They WANT to take care of their parents. I consider when your child WANTS to take care of you, rather than feels obligated, you did a good job.
More on this family to come soon.
