“I am using this time to hopefully better myself. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
Being in jail has brought me closer to God.
I feel that I can be the best mother and person for my children and myself. I’m so grateful to be able to tell “my” story and to share how I’ve been feeling and to let people know they’re not alone.
I’ve come to realize that this was an experience that needed experiencing. I plan on going back to school and getting my degree. I’m 130 days sober, and every day is a new day for me to celebrate in my recovery.
Coming to jail is showing me that I can do better. I am taking a domestic violence program so I can know what a healthy relationship is, and I can teach my kids what a healthy relationship is. You just have to believe in yourself.
I’m a 30-year-old single mom with newborn twins and a 9-year-old son. I’m a survivor of domestic violence, sexual abuse and addiction. I’ve learned that God has given me talents to help others, and this purse gave me self-esteem because I’ve been called goofy and dumb or not good enough.
