I’m 24 years old, and I have a 5-year-old little girl. My drug abuse, which eventually led to circumstances surrounding my incarceration, started around the age of 12 after my mom passed away. I came from a broken home, and when she died, using drugs is how I dealt with things. The last two years of the situation I’ve been in has shown and taught me a lot. I’m hoping that I can put it in the past when I’m released from jail. My daughter deserves better, and so do I. Hopefully, I can fix things and continue to better myself for her and myself.
