My cousin, who was my first friend, and my brother before I had a bio brother..maybe my favorite person…got into drugs and gangs in his teens and at 21 killed a man in a bar fight. He spent the next almost 20 years in maximum security prison. He got out about two years ago and it has been a really hard adjustment for everyone but it’s better every day.

And in recovery I’ve witnessed miraculous healing of broken lives, relationships that have been rebuilt; mothers and fathers with terminated parental rights regaining custody of their children, a daughter befriending the drunk driver that killed her father, and, yes, sisters becoming sisters again.

I will pray for you both.

Take a breath and let what happens happen. There is nothing that can’t be unbroken if you believe a person can change.

I hope she has. -❤

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
