Hope For The Future
DAY 3 OF 9
Then my dad left. He “found someone who really understood” him. We were living on a military base in Germany at the time, and life was OK.
Six months later, we moved back to the U.S. because the base closed. I had to leave all my friends. My dad was distant. My mom was living in depression, not really paying attention to what my brother and I were thinking and feeling.
When my dad did come around to see us, my mom did not want us spending time with him. So I was pretty much alone. I was quite literally abandoned by everyone I loved.
Then I met Jimmy. He was cute, funny, and paid a lot of attention to me. He seemed genuinely interested in me and what I was going through. He made me feel like I wasn’t alone anymore.
Our relationship progressed pretty quickly and he started pressuring me about sex. Sure, God didn’t want me to have sex before I got married, but what had He done for me lately?
Mom had told me about her getting pregnant in high school and how she miscarried and how awful that was for her. But we had protection. I wouldn’t be so stupid and get pregnant. --Brandy
