I thought my future would be horrible

When I was young I thought my future would be horrible. I thought I would be in and out of jail like my brothers and sisters. I didn’t think to look at myself as that independent woman that I am today. Because of MYFS I now realize that I am in charge of me and no matter what hard times I face, I just have to keep my head up and I can overcome anything and still remain on top. I have even regained the courage to let my father back in my life, who I hadn’t spoken to since I was 13. My MYFS Counselor always has my back and gives me a shoulder to cry on. I can’t thank MYFS enough for saving my life from going down the wrong path.
