Hello, I am a 38 year old female who had a lot of disappointments since a young age. My father passed away from cancer when I was 3 years old.. My mother turned to alcohol to mourn the loss of my dad.. It wasnt an easy upbringing..
My step sisters would babysit me while my mom was out drinking. My sisters would call me names and at times they would get physical with me.. I cried for help and that's when my mom gave up drinking and she also quit smoking.. By the time I turned 15, I started to do drugs and alcohol, I dropped out of school and I started having sex. A few years passed and met a guy I fell in love witb a guy I met. We ended up getting our own apt..Shortly after I found out I was pregnant and I immediately quit using drugs and stopped drinking... I am now a mother of 2 handsome boys... The things that i have endured during childhood and adulthood are heartbreaking beyond belief, this has had a detrimental impact on me and seeing the hurt my children have gone through on their own lifes journey has been harrowing, but over the last year i have grown stronger & something inside me has changed.
