My twin sister and I were taken away from our parents when we were 5 years old. We were taken to Childhelp and later placed in a foster home. It’s been difficult growing up with no parents, with no one to help us. All I have is my sister. I grew up a drug addict but I’ve been in recovery for almost 3 years now. My son was briefly placed in foster care, but I now have full custody of him. I was angry for so long because I didn’t have anyone to help me. When I turned 18 I had to live on the streets but what I learned is that it’s what I do that matters. I’m now 30 years old and I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but what I do remember is Childhelp. Thank you for protecting us and accepting us; thank you for giving me and my sister a life to live.
