Raised amidst neglect, I have found solace in animals and forged strength through raising my special-needs child. From a childhood devoid of love, my pets offered unconditional care. Their innocence fuels my heart. Sadly, I have found that I am not alone in my struggles; countless outsiders share my journey. I have found purpose through nurturing animals and my son. I trust my story stands as a testament to resilience and an inspiration to those seeking connection amidst their own struggles. I am here to show that from darkness, you can still uncover light.
