More Info

 I was in and out of foster homes and the department of youth services from 8 to 18 years old. My mom was 15 when she had me and by 17 she had my 2 sisters. My grandparents raised me until my grandfather died when I was 8. I was sent away and my sisters stayed with my mom. At 18 I joined the National Gaurd. I guess I was looking for that since of family or something I lost when my grandfather died. When I was 20 I broke my collarbone and got addicted to opiates. My life was HELL for the better part of 13 years. I was never one of those addicts that stole or begged. I worked everyday and stayed away from most of the BS. I was able to open my business and employ a couple guys while in addiction. At that point I settled and was happy living the meaningless life I was. Febuary 18th 2021 my daughter Autumn Sky was born. Three weeks later DCF comes takes custody of her. After my wife and I had the court hearing, 72 hours later she was taken. We both went into treatment. I always believed in God but never gave myself to him. I had a resentment towards him for the trauma in my life. I had no family, raped on a daily basis at it's worse, beaten and just felt unloved. How could there be a God? What did I do for all this stuff to happen to me? So when I was in treatment i started to pray again. I would pray for my daughter to be safe in the home she was at until my sister could get her. God proved to me He is always there and will NEVER give you more then you will be able to handle. I never had a"normal" family and thats all I want to have for my kids. I feel my trails and tribulation made me a great man. I believe my testimony WILL save someone's life one day. Today my wife and I are living in a family shelter in Brockton wait on housing. I've taken the last 18 months to improve myself through counseling, parenting classes, men's groups, career coaching and most of all God. 

I've been offered a life changing career!!! My driver's license is holding me back from this job. My license was taken for an accumulation of parking tickets, alterations to the car and excise taxes.
