I’m 20 years old.  I’m a mother of one beautiful baby girl.  I have been battling with addiction since I was 15 years old.  I was in a very abusive relationship.  Then it was like my life went downhill afterwards.  I got an aggravated robbery charge and now I’m in jail.  I’ve been here almost 11 months.  I don’t have a clue when I’m going home because I wanted to be selfish.  My weakness was pills.  I betrayed my family, friends, and most of all my 4-year-old child.  This is the worst thing I have ever had to deal with – not knowing when I will be free.  Being in jail has helped me.  I’ve learned a lot.  I found God, but most importantly I found myself.  When I get out, I am going to be a better mom and person.  I would really like to help women who are battling with addiction.  My child is my motivation, and now I know God has a great plan for me.  My dream is for me to be a better role model and beat this addiction and prove to myself and others that I am worth so much more.
