The love of a mother

Created by

The love of a mother

I grew up a strong Morman. When I was 14 years old I was put into a group home beacuse I am bipolar. When I turned 18 I got dumpted at Disneyland. I had a friend that I didn't know was a drug dealer pick me up. I started on meth. Last year on January 27, 2012 I found out that I was pregnant. I had a choice to make. My unborn child or drugs. I chose my unborn baby. I have been clean for now a year and a month. My son is almost 5 months. He is a healthy, happy baby.


This Story of Hope was created in celebration of recovery and to let families know that there are pathways to hope and healing. The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families who are struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page so that families know where to turn to for help, and that there is always hope.

I just wanted to give you my email address in case you need to contact someone. I don't know if you believe in spiritual warfare, but spirits which influence addictions have a tendency of attacking us when we are particularly vulnerable. This is how relapses occur, and it is how the alcoholic manages to stay sober for a year, only to find themselves fall into temptation because an old friend "coincidentally" meets up out of the blue and asks them if they want to have a drink and catch up. Anyway, just thought I would reach out in case you ever find yourself in a dark place and need to borrow a flashlight who has been in the same position. mstone241986@yahoo.com
