My daughter Meleia came into the world a tiny two pounds. My little premie was my motivation for staying clean for several years. I didn’t relapse until I lost my mother to cancer.
The relapse was a big one and I lost custody of Meleia to my brother. How I lived through those days is nothing short of a miracle.
When I heard about Thistle Farms, I didn’t feel like I had time for a two-year program. But it was exactly what I needed to begin my journey of healing.
Today, I have full custody of Meleia, and am rebuilding a relationship with my son. We have a home of our own. I have a job using my lived experience to advocate for the homeless in the city of Nashville.
Because I took the time to heal, I can now look forward to building a beautiful future with my children.
This Mother’s Day
Jennifer is Reunited
Since coming to Thistle Farms, I have reconnected with my children - one at a time. The only relationship left to rekindle was with my youngest son. In January, I received a message from a twenty-eight-year-old man looking for his birth mother.
He had found me.
What he said will stay with me forever: He said he only thinks of me with love in his heart, that he has had an amazing life, and thanked me for giving him that life.
At Thistle Farms, I have found myself and my children, for that, I will always be forever grateful.
