When he discovers her mom’s body after she suffers an epileptic seizure, her world is turned upside down. She doesn’t get along with her only sibling, but worst of all, she is abandoned all over again when her father gives her away along with her brother.
She suffers through the abuse and neglect of Foster families, starts using drugs and alcohol at the age of 11, the same age she began a life of prostitution. Later she becomes a gang banger and eventually a full- fledged crack addict.
Her miraculous and meticulous journey to recovery inspires and restore my hope in the love God puts into the hearts of His people. When people allow God to use them, everyone wins.
