I was adopted when I was 16 months old. My mom and dad are Christians so I learned about God but didn't choose to be a Christian myself. When I was a young teen I got involved in a lot of hurtful (sinful) behaviors. I knew what I was doing to other people was wrong and I hated myself for it. Because of my guilt, I hated when people brought up the subject of God. I couldn't understand grace, freedom or forgiveness and thought God could never accept me. My pastor knew about the struggles I was having and told me about The Fold. He said that it was an awesome program and a place where I could change.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York. My birth mother was a crack cocaine addict and I was born as a result of a drug deal. I was placed in foster care shortly after I was born, as a result of child negligence. When I was around 2, my grandmother came to relieve me from the Foster Care system and took me into her home as though I was her very own daughter.
I was not born into a Christian family. Instead, I lived with my mom who was an alcoholic and two half-siblings. When I was 2, we were all taken to foster care. I was in foster care for 2 ½ years. In that time I lived in seven different houses before coming to live with the family that would adopt me...
My name is Sabrina. I am 18 years old. I grew up with my mother, grandparents and younger brother. My father left us when I was two years old, and has had little involvement in my life since. For most of my childhood the only Christians I knew were my grandparents. They would take me and my brother to church when I was little.
I'm Rey. I am sixteen years old. I was born in Randolph, VT. My mom was not a Christian and my father was Catholic and was also a severe alcoholic. He was the only religious person I knew at the time. My parents were never married but lived together. They separated when I was 3 months old. When I was five years old my dad died.
