God opened my eyes

I am 16 years old and have been in foster care since I was a baby. My life changed recently for the better. It was hard for me when I was younger due to my mother not being in my life and never meeting my father. Once I hit 13, things got worse. It was really bad this year. I lied to leave my aunt’s care. It didn’t work and then God opened my eyes the night I almost left. I saw how my life could have been without her in my life. Now I feel like I can help others more than I was able to in the past.
