Dear reader, I never asked for this.

I wish I could tell you that my childhood was as happy as my smile in the photo above...

...unfortunately, I was born with a disability called

Cerebral Palsy....

...later at the age of 19, I had another diagnosis called Dyscalculia...

Even though I faced some difficulties, my mother did her best to try and make sure that I had a normal childhood...

...but it was anything but "normal"

Looks can be deceiving.

On the surface, we looked the part of a family who had everything together...

...other than a secret that no one knew about.

You see, it wasn't the disabilities I had been diagnosed with that made my life a living hell...

There was a secret.

My Father was a pastor and spoke from the pulpit on Sundays, but he physically abused me at home due to my disability...

...I was often left beaten, bloodied, and feeling hopeless

The same hands that prayed for others, broke me down.

I didn't understand why out of all people my father treated me horribly...

Was my life not important to him?

Was I not good enough?

Why me...

Yet, through all of that, I knew that my story wasn't over.

And Your Story Isn't Over Either.
