She couldn’t handle it.
At 12 years old, she became addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Later on, her stepbrother sexually abused her.
Her comfort zone quickly turned into a nightmare.
Hopeless. Not knowing who to ask for help. She turned to the person that knew her best: herself.
The recovery process began.
Anything or anyone who could offer advice was a fair game.
It was refreshing.
She questioned her existence. Reasons for why she was put on this earth. Got in touch with a higher spirit, God.
All, ultimately leading to her larger purpose, to help other adoptees who may be experiencing similar issues.
Focusing on areas such as:
Why adoptees should reconnect with their roots
Importance of adoptee community
Accepting your past
On healing: It takes time
On community: Connect with others in-person
On future: Trust your instincts
On life: Don’t take yourself too seriously
