Well im not your typical 17 year old high school girl that wants to impress everyone with my looks. I grew up with a pretty much crappy childhood. Everybody has them 2 parents that they have lived with their whole life and been together for years. Well in my case i was around drugs for majority part of my life. For maybe 7 years of my life i never had a "mom" that was actually there for me. My biological mother was a drug addict and she had a major pill addiction. There wasnt one day i didnt see her messed up on drugs or drunk for that matter; I would have to help her to bed when she was so drunk that she couldnt walk. I cant tell you how many times i help her. I was always told by her for years that she would quit and make our lifes better, but everytime she had said that i knew in my heart that it was a lie. How can you believe someone that saids that over and over and still doing the things that they said that they would stop doing. I never understood why, and to this day i never will. The age of 5 she walked away from my sister and i. The sad part about that is she was only 3! My dad has multiple women that came in and out of my life they never stayed. My mom and dad split in 2001 and got a divorce in 2002. I lived without a "mother figure" for about 2 years. 2005 my dad decided that he wanted to remarry this women that he didnt know very long!!! But the best thing i can honestly can say that ever happened she adopted me and my sister in May of 2007, and made my biological mom give up her rights. That was the saddest day of my life i can honestly say. But im a daddy's girl and always will be. He has never left my side and I thank the lord everyday for it. My quote that i love and helps me threw my rough times is:
“Peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment;
And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes.
Thy friends do stand by thee..."
-Joseph Smith Jr-
Well you have heard my story!
