Testimony

“My name is Katelynn. I’m sixteen years old. I am a recovered addict. My parents split up when I was a baby and my mom hasn’t been stable since. She is on dope, in and out of relationships, and constantly moves around. I have spent 6 1/2 months in rehab and 2 months in JDC waiting for a bed to open. In 2015 I ran away from my dad’s and started smoking pot and doing pills. I got in a relationship that was no good for me and together we got in a lot of trouble. We both got sent off and then when I got back I got in another relationship. Again it was the same thing. This time I done so many pills that I overdosed. I went into cardiac arrest at 14 because of this. I went into rehab but when I returned home I got back on it again. I was in and out of people’s houses and I didn’t know I had hit rock bottom until I was arrested the last time. I had lost everything including myself and should have been dead after all of that. My mom still isn’t stable but I have gotten help. I still have bad days and good ones but I am making it. Since coming to New Life Children’s Home I’ve grew closer with God and I begun to understand that I have a purpose in life and it is all because of God. Thanks to this place because I wouldn’t have ever got this far in life. I have made a complete 360 in life and I never thought I could change.” God Bless.
