Mellisa described herself as wanting her own way as a teenager. This ‘headstrong’
attitude” as she describes it caused her to leave her home in high school. She
became independent to live by her own rules.
Mellisa’s life carried her through many “ dark places and lifestyles”. Her lack of
family support and assistance as an expectant mother was “ Hard”. Mellisa found
strength in her faith to find “ a way out of no way “.
Mellisa’s journey is a testament of survival through the storms of life. A message
on social media was life changing.
