    I am a youth that has been in and out of lock up , group homes , foster homes and etc since i was 15. I am 17 now and im still getting in trouble i have a good mother by my side but she can not put up with my behaviors yes i am a female and it hurts to know that everyone a some point is qoinq to leave your side because of your situation i try had to please people but it doesnt work i make mistakes dont we all but at the end of the day i tried. Right now at this point i try to do well but i just want to be successful i am committed to DYS and its alot to be committed i did a long eight months but got through it with my mothers help. Straight ahead ministries helped me because when i need someone to talk to or i need help with some kind of situation i have someone. Now i see stuff that i never saw clear and that was your human and your gunna fail but the point is to keep your head up and keep qoinq.

      It’s been a long journey for you, but you are moving forward! We’re so glad to know that you have your mother’s support. She sounds amazing. It also sounds like you’ve discovered how valuable it is to talk about what’s happening in your life with someone that you can trust – and to ask for help when you need it. Good for you! You are right when you say that we all make mistakes. It’s good to know that we can take those mistakes to God and ask for his help, forgiveness and strength anytime we need it. That’s the kind of fresh start we all need every day. Keep going — we’re cheering for you!
