Since I was a little girl my life has been rough, but as I got older rough became tough and tough became a struggle. The one thing I always have admired about myself is the fact that despite the odds that I was up against I never gave up or gave in.
My story is simple yet complicated. I was raised in foster care. I am the youngest of four brothers and the only girl. My mother is an addict and my father was an addict who vanished from my life. I was afforded the same opportunities as any other regular kid, with the exception that my mother and father were absent from my life by their inability to make the right decisions. So I was to be considered a ward of the State. I am expected to become a “statistic”, but i had better plans for myself.
At the age of 16 I got emancipated. I just got tired of living with different people and being mistreated or demanded to do things. I knew that within myself that I had to be better than where I came from. I pushed and pushed and i succedded. I managed to care for myself and attend school. I graduated on time and began living my adult life.
At the age of 24 I am now realizing that life brings curve balls and its up to you to catch them. I have been through so much, but I refuse to give up. I am a survivor and I am destined to be great!
I found that life itsself is a blessing, and being able to experience it is ultimatly the ability to make lemonade out of the lemons you are given…
Finding the blessing is not the hard part..
Learn to love, Accept, and Live freely
God never puts to much on you that you can’t bare
he gives you just enough because he knows that you can handle it all.
You just have to believe in yourself…
