Could this be? Me? A mother of
a drug addicted child?

While all this may seem like a
bad dream, Reality hits, it was a
peg with my name on it.

The fall from my white horse
prove to be awakening. My
bruised heart, mind and soul is
still shaking me.

It was much easier being on the
outside looking in. Now that I
am in, it's like being Daniel in the

A mother of a drug addicted
child could this be? Riding the
wave of this trial, holding my
breath to see where it's taking

This frightening path so many
had to go through. A dark weary
place, I wish I didn't have to.

But then who am I to say, what
lessons in my life should come
into play. I have to humbly
accept it, learn all I can from it
and pray.

For my Lord said, all things work
together for the good of those

It is counter productive to go

value by giving God his praise
and asking for battle strategies
to help your child win over this
blazing sin.

Clothe yourselves with love,
faith and hope the word of God
do say. To be honest with you
these are the only way to cope
at the end of the day.

I am a mother of a drug
addicted child praying daily and
hoping that a deliverance is
coming in a little while.

Ginger Katz, mother of Ian and Founder of The Courage to Speak®
Foundation, Inc.

My drug use started with Ecstasy at the age of 18. I had it all, a good
job, nice car, I was in college, had a close relationship with my family, an
incredible girlfriend and an incredible daughter. I could not ask for anything

At the age of 22, everything started slipping. I lost everything and mostly
everyone. I let drugs be my priority for a long time. I lost focus of what was
important. I turned into a person I never wanted to associate or to be with. I
lost everything" J.M.B
