I just had to write about how proud of myself I am. About 5 months ago, my children were removed from my home because I was using drugs. The minute they took my girls, I quit. I've been clean almost 5 months and haven't thought twice about ever wanting to go back. Well, I signed my girls to go into voluntary foster care for 90 days so that there would be no courts or anything involved. They were mis-treated in the foster home and because I was doing so well, I got my girls back a month early. Didn't help that I was living with an angel. My bf's cousin is a true child of God. She took me in and talked to my case worker about giving my girls back early. She supported us for the last 3 months when I am no relation to her at all. Then, she found herself a bf. So she wanted her house back to herself. I am ready to move on my own so she gave me an apartment at the complex that she manages. I am so grateful to her. But I am also proud of myself for remaining clean and getting my girls back. You truly never know what you have till it is gone. Now that I have been through the pain of losing my girls, even for 2 months, I will do everything in my power for that not to happen again. So I just wanted to release this happiness and thanks for reading.
