When I realized I wanted to go in to the human services was when DCF came in to my life. I was seven and my sister was eleven, she went to school with a bruise on her right cheek, when the school asked what happened she blamed me and said we were play fighting, but the real story was my father punched her in the face. We ended up going through an investigation with DCF and my father had to be removed for the house for the time being. I did not want to go to foster care so I lied when they asked me questions, secretly hoping they would figure I was lying, they never did.

She started spending more time with us going to on trips and just finally becoming a family.

When I volunteered it made me feel like a person and I was finally doing something right in a life full of wrongs. To see a smile on someone else’s face from a deed that I did is a feeling of satisfactory that I cannot explain. It made me want to do more and go to different places...
