Eventually, I became conditioned and resigned that this was to be my life.

I stayed in the game for 15 years under the control of 3 different pimps. The year I turned 30 I decided I couldn’t force another day like this. I ran away and went home to my family. I quickly married and had children pushing all the trauma and pain deep down inside. Eventually it manifested itself into addictions that I fought for years. Over and over I would get my life together and then the pain of my past would surface, and I’d tear it all down.

Then I met Annie and got the opportunity to come into Destiny House. Since being here I have been able to work through my demons and embrace the love that Christ has for me. I have hope for my future because I know that the foundation, I am building in God through the work I’m doing at Destiny House will guarantee a successful and happy life.
