This is one of the 5 children I am proud to call my own. Of course she is the baby. I have older ones that are in school for EMT and also have a 16 year old riding in the pro bull riders association, When Dont Label My Kid was just a thought, I had worked with thousands of teens, adults and children . I have had 25 live -in foster kids, 5 of my own, and worked one on one with thousands. Personally, grew up in a violent environment, with an absentee father. I have lived through childhood trauma, my brother committed suicide after watching a television show with me. I have fought and beat the addictions that I was introduced to as a child, and won, by God’s grace. Most recently, I have had 2 car accidents, and been diagnosed with AVN, which has landed me in the hospital 13 times in the last 2 years, including 3 major hip surgeries. Then it got really tough! LOL!
I feel a personal and a professional connection to this effort to help people overcome obstacles and labels in their lives. If I made it, you can too! Hope you enjoy the site!
