God's many blessing

by Rosa
(Champaign, Illinois,USA)

Hi my name is Rosa Simpkins I am 20 years old and I currently live in Champaign, Illinois. I am a loving daughter, wife, and friend. Although I was not always like that, because when I was just a young girl I always found myself getting into trouble at school, home, foster homes, juveniles, and other places. Growing up I had a rough life and God was there for me through every step of the way even though I din't know he was there for me it doesn't mean that he wasn't. He was just waiting and watching and holding my hand through my whole journey through life. I was a young girl with the body of a woman, because I had developed early and I had got mixed up with the wrong people and got into drugs, sex, lying, stealing, and manipulating. mY Father was never in my life growing up, I didn't even know if he was alive or dead or what happened to him. I kept praying as a kid that my dad would come back into my life and that he would just call. One early morning I was on a home pass at my mom's house, because at the time I was locked up in White's residential family services in Wabash, Indiana and I remember I was in my room and then the phone rang and it was my daddy. I was so mad at him, but at the same time so very happy he tried to buy my love back by bying me stuff that my

mom could never afford. My life was so messed up when my father came back into my life. My mom caught me dating and older black guy she found letters that was written while I was at school and she ended up sending me all the way to Portland oregon with my aunti and uncle which is who and where I got started smoking crack and weed and prostituting and everything else lying to cops and then getting locked up my step dad mallested me my mom never believed me and it was all bad basically finally when I went to go live with my dad I moved out my uncle tryed to rape me and he tryed to stab my x boyfriend who later became my husband who then I devorced and then I just got married last year to another man who has done nothing but cheat on me and put his hands on me and I am still with him, because I love him oh so much, I have had to sleep in the park, in his friends car and van behind walmart and other places it's been crazy but God watched over us the whole time and things are starting to look up now if only we could find our place to stay and get a job it would be great but I can't complain, because we are off the streets for now anyways but I have faith and I would just liket to thank God for the many of blessings that he has put in my life
