‘Our marriage was over. I found out things about him that left me devastated. I was raised in a home where divorce didn’t happen.’: Mom overcomes divorce and alcoholism with 2 years of sobriety

“I called a guy on the phone. He was like, ‘are you drunk?’ I said, ‘no,’ and my friends started laughing. Here I was, 24 years old, single mom of 2 boys and working 2 jobs. I was hurting and every chance I got I went to bars and drank more than I should have. I was in self-destruct mode.”

‘I didn’t have a job or a house. My son was put in foster care. I lost everything because of alcohol.’: Father beats addiction after hitting ‘rock bottom,’ celebrates 3 years of sobriety

“I relapsed and spiraled downhill very fast. I stopped going to my drug and alcohol counselor. I started cancelling visits with my son because I was ‘sick’. I felt so hopeless and unworthy as a parent and human being. Then, my case manager showed up and reminded me I was in it for my son. I literally broke down and cried. I told her to leave, and she refused. ‘I will be with you for anything you need.’ She reassured me I had the potential to do this.”

‘No really, it’s yours. Your dad gave it to me for you.’ My dad had been dead 9 years. I was shaking.’: Marine son receives wedding gift from father in heaven to ‘protect’ him

“I’d never seen it before. It was nice. ‘Well, it’s for you…’ I didn’t understand. My dad had been dead for almost 9 years. There’s no way this was from him. When he was still in the Marine Corps, he’d met with my dad. At this point, I couldn’t see, silently crying. This must’ve happened before I even graduated high school.”
