I was born to a beautiful couple caught in a world of addiction. I was later adopted by a loving, kind, godly woman after being transferred to multiple foster homes. Around this time, I received a phone call that my father had overdosed on heroin at the age of 45. This just added to the pain I already felt inside. I was introduced to pain pills after suffering a miscarriage and discovered that they not only numbed the physical pain, but my emotional pain as well. It wasn’t long before I was introduced to meth and that took me down a dark and deep spiral downwards.
I turned my back on my family and put getting high above anything else. I went through two relapses before finding myself here at the Women of Hope, and it is by the grace of God that I made it here. I am so grateful for this program and all that I have learned since coming here. I chose to let God take control of things that are out of my hands and let him heal things that I have been holding onto for far too long. God has completely restored the relationship I have with my husband and my four beautiful daughters. I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to come here and work this program. I have been set free, and whom the Son sets free is free indeed!
