My addiction started when I was 15 years old due to childhood trauma of my best friend being shot and killed, and my mom being physically assaulted. I ended up in North County San Diego in 2017, after serving a 4 year prison term for vehicle theft. I went through treatment for a year and was sober for 2 years when I met Angela. It wasn’t long after, that I relapsed and was sentenced another prison term of 2 years leaving Angela pregnant with my daughter. 6 months after my daughter was born, I was released and started using again, I couldn’t stop. Fast forward, my son was born, Angela began drinking again and I continued using meth which led to us losing our children to CWS. I went into treatment and united with Angela at Solutions for Change in Spring of 2022. Later that year, my daughter was born and we closed our CWS case. God was working in my family’s life. Today I practice servant’s leadership, I’ve expumged my entire criminal record of 18 cases, I am working full-time, and was promoted to production supervisor. It’s not about what I’ve done but what I’m doing.
