Everyone has a story, here is my. I appear to have it together. But behind this smile lies heartache.
The only memory I have of my mom is Men beating her. She died when I was 9 years old. My dad has never been there for his precious daughter. I was a motherless& fatherless child.
Molested by my aunts boyfriend when I was 10,11,12 yrs old. Got pregnant when I was only 17 years old.Then my “everything” died when I was 18 yrs old. y grandmother died.
18 yrs old with a 3 month old son, now what? I had two more kids by a different man. I was in an abusive relationship. My son watched a man beat his Mom just like I watched a man beat my mom.
My friends were afraid for my life!!! I got out but I had nothing. What else could possibly go wrong?
Then I was raped. I was homeless with 3 small kids, so I started selling drugs. My car got shot up. Apartment got shot up with me and my kids there. And guess what? I was pregnant. 25 with 4 kids 3 baby daddy’s, and only a high school diploma.
I am tired, but what’s next…? Jesus
