My Mom is my biggest inspiration
When I was 3 years old my brother was born, and my Dad got custody of me. My mom was 19 when she had me, and only got married to my Dad because "It was the right thing to do" They split up 6 weeks later (I was a little over a year)
My Mom has been through a hard life, therefore putting me through it too. She is a habitual offender and in 6 weeks she will be going to prison for the FOURTH time. She is sentenced to 38 years
She has used drugs in the past, but she mostly sold. She had three charges against her and they dropped two. The judge said if she wouldn't take the 38 years she would have to go to jury trial and they would add back the two charges making it three total. Then she would go to prison for 75 to 99 years, life. Even though what she did was wrong, She is such a good person. She is so caring and would give anyone the shirt off her back. She sold because it was the easiest way to make a living. She always spent that money on us and my DD. I feel like she felt she was so deep in with it, that her life wasn't worth trying to fight for. My Mom has basically taught me what not to do, how to not treat my daughter, how to look at life from a positive point of view. I believe that God gave me my daughter to fill the place of my mom, I needed that mother daughter connection somehow. She hasn't held or even touched my daughter since she was 3 months old and now she is almost 11m. She got picked up on December 21st, and we were going to spend Christmas with her at her house just a few days later.. I had to go clean out her house and get as much stuff as I could and it seriously felt like someone had died.
It might be a long shot, but we are still believing in a miracle, and I know one day she is going to walk free and live a good purpose filled life.
