Bringing Them Home

What motivated you to get your GED degree? This day and age, jobs are hard to come by. I went from place to place, filling out application after application. trying to get a job, and I never had any luck. I have two beautiful children living at my fathers house, and a step-daughter living in foster care. I was told by the court that I needed a job and a house in order to bring them home. So after all the job hunting I’ve been doing, I gave up and decided to look into how to get my GED certificate. 

How have your friends and family helped you? I have tons of friends and family give me tons of inspiration. I even did volunteer work for a local community place. The person in charge of that place really helped by opening my eyes with encouragement and telling me how creative and bright that I ’am—that I shouldn’t be wasting my talent and creativity in a place like that.

What problems have you faced? Right now the biggest challenge is to bring my children home. I need all the help I can get to do that!

What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? My dreams are to have a job that I can get creative in, a beautiful home that, even when the children are grown up and gone, they know they can always come home when they need or want to.
