Keeping Kids Safe, Healthy, and Strong
Yet, Morgan’s own childhood haunted her. For a very long time she was numb. She seemed unable to even receive a hug, to love and be loved.
Neglect numbs and destroys. Morgan once knew only despair. She now has hope >
She is determined that her daughter will not experience the tragic neglect and abuse that she barely survived.
At the age of 4, Morgan walked dazed around her block for hours to get away from the violent fighting of her parents. She escaped by spending all her time at the neighbors, anywhere to get away from the fallout. She even felt at age 8 that her parents’ divorce was best for all of them.
She lived with her Dad who ignored her and left her alone. She visited her Mom, who would hide all the knives from her violent step-Dad.
Forgotten, she started pushing boundaries.

At age 13, Morgan’s Dad kicked her out. Alone and lost, she lived with friends. Then early in High School she lived with her grandparents. Their sudden deaths caused her to spiral into depression and drugs.
At 16 and homeless, Morgan ran away to Seattle. She fell headfirst into numerous tragic circumstances… Still using drugs, she was badly abused, kidnapped, sold to pay for a drug debt, and then beaten to an inch of her life.
Morgan was jailed followed by long-term recovery treatment. She was finally at a good place, then relapsed. That was when she got pregnant. During her pregnancy and the collapse of that relationship, she tried many times to get clean. After almost losing her baby, she resolved to get healthy and keep her baby. She entered treatment for pregnant women where she got help and support from other mothers.
FINDING HELP, LEARNING TO PARENT
Morgan was determined to build a positive support team. She reached Parent Trust’s Families In Recovery Group with other recovering parents who welcomed her without judgment, extending their support and open arms.
Morgan is committed to being a good Mom and loving parent.
HOPE FOR TODAY & TOMORROW
Morgan thanks Parent Trust...
