The Mother my Daughter Deserves

 

I came to Brunswick with the clothes on my back, misery in my heart, and chaos in my life. I got to Grace House in early 2012. I thought that this was my last stepping stone before I died. I didn’t know that in actuality it was the first stepping stone into a real life that I can be (and am) proud of. Grace House taught me rules, routine, faith, acceptance, and unconditional love. It introduced me to a life that I never thought I deserved. It taught me to never give up. Grace House and what it stands for helped me to be the mother that my daughter deserves. It has helped me to earn the trust of a corporation to manage people and money. Grace House helped me to be happy, to have faith and acceptance in all aspects of life, and has given me lasting friendships that I will cherish until my last breath. Grace House gave me life when I was knocking on death’s door.

What the Grace House means to me.

 

Pain pills and alcohol had me on the couch wanting to die. My husband left with my three year old and I hit bottom. Instead of committing suicide, I called a friend who took me to detox. They recommended nine months at the Grace House. That was the best decision I ever made and an experience I will remember forever. The Grace House, counseling, the women at the house and AA together taught me to be sober, happy , joyous and free.  I have experienced the miracles. The girls and I sat, cooked, cleaned, cried, talked, and had fun together. I have my daughter back in my life and I will forever be grateful to the Grace House for saving my life.
