Sisters Jen Geist and Mary Beth Hebert grew up in Louisiana. They cherish each other in a way that only siblings of a shared experience can.

When talking about their father, who passed away when they were young, they describe him as loving and warm. Their mother, though, they say suffered from a borderline personality disorder, admittedly never wanted children.

When they got together in the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, they share some revealing facts about their upbringing and talk about Geist’s own motherhood.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps Booth.
