Mother of 7...or 8 depending on how you are counting. Birthed my 4 biological children in a hot tub - underwater - including 2 lotus births (umbilical cord is left attached from baby to placenta until it naturally falls off around day 3). So much care and thought put into every parenting action that I did.
Then I am awakened by a phone call at 3:33am June 20, 2021. "Ma'am we have your daughter." My daughter? Impossible. I saw her go to bed. "Ma'am we need you to come right now and get your daughter. She was drinking and driving and speeding in a construction zone. And there are two boys with her." Wait...what?!
Over the next few months I would slowly be awakened to the fact that my 17 year old daughter had hid a drug addiction from me for three years and that she was starting to scratch herself in self-harming ways. And it turns out my daughter was bonding with my 14 year old son through drugs for a few months.
Thus, started a painful and enlightening journey into the world of addiction.
But healing, restoration, awakenings, and absolute miracles were in store for all of us.
Thank you God for the journey. I would do it all again to learn what I learned and become who I now am. Thank you God for your love that surrounds me even in the brokenness.
