At the age of 13, after my parents’ divorce, I became resentful and started using marijuana. A year later I was pregnant. At the age of 21 I started hanging out with old friends who abused alcohol and Vicodin.
After getting pregnant again, my abusive relationship took an ugly turn. I found myself facing a jail sentence for assault.
I was so alone, lost, and broken … as well as 5-months pregnant. By the grace of God I was released and entered Adult & Teen Challenge.
Things have gotten better each and every day I’ve been here. I’m so grateful for this program. They provided me with everything my new baby needs, and helped me get my daughter back. I’ve become a better mother and have strong boundaries.
