So today was a pretty good day at work…. Every day I meet new people because of what I do and for those who don’t know me I’m a hairstylist. I meet different kinds of people every day. Some are uplifting and funny and some are a little crazy and weird like me. Than you have the ones that are just very very cranky and we all know that there are just some people out there you can’t make happy.
I hear different kinds of stories every day some are good and some are bad but the ones that stick with me the most are the ones that I hear about children. When I started Jack’s Corner back in March I never imagined I would be hearing such horrible stories. Today I was told another story, a story about a little boy who was born addicted to drugs. I can’t tell you the whole story but I was told the mother use to dip the babies binki in heroine and give it to him just to shut him up. Yes, I just wanted to cry. What is wrong with people? How can you possibly live with yourself? For those that live with the addiction and make that decision to have children knowing they are on drugs and more than likely will not stop while they are pregnant or even after they have the child, why would you make that choice to have that child? What a selfish act, how can someone continue to do drugs knowing that there is a little baby growing inside of them. How do you continuously hurt your child that way?
I went into this knowing that I couldn’t help every family or help every child out there but I sure was gonna try. I have a few families that I’m working with right now and they have touched my heart in such away I can’t even explain. If I was to explain to you their stories I would probably not be able to get through it without balling my eyes out. All I know is that what I am doing is going to make a difference in someone’s life. I know that even if it is the slightest difference it will give them just that little bit of hope and comfort to know that there are real people out there that care and want to help.
If anyone knows a foster family out there that needs some help with children’s clothes please send them my way. I think foster parents are truly amazing. I don’t quite understand how they can foster these children knowing they have to give them back to parents that more than likely don’t deserve them because if it was me I would probably keep them all and run away with them. Yes, everyone of them….I would keep them all….. lol
With all that being said thank you for letting me vent. This past week sure has been rough but I know that what I’m doing is the right thing and I’m truly passionate about what Jack’s corner will be able to accomplish.
