This book is a candid look at my life and the hardships that I have faced in hopes that you will realize that you are not alone. There is someone out there that feels like you do, and needs like you do; someone that struggles with the battle of the adolescent life that you crave and the premature adult life that you are forced to live. There is hope for your future and ways to prove all the people wrong that told you that "your life is over" when you decided to have your child. There will be a day when you sit down and look around at your life and don't feel overwhelmed by each day, but excited about the future. And even though there will be days that you feel lost, alone and completely inundated with life in general, you will have the self-assurance that you need to take on those challenges and continue to move forward on the path that YOU set for yourself. You will live the life that you want based on your standards and this will allow you to provide the same luxury for your child.
