I am reaching back out to you to express gratitude for your love and support. These are without doubt difficult times, but your kindness helps to soften the blow. The human spirit certainly is resilient and with your prayers and friendship, I am able to overcome obstacles much more gratefully.
A few updates in my world: Through the help of many supporters I am excited to say I have sent out my admissions form to the University of Colorado and in January plan to be enrolled in B.S Sociology program. I also have been approved to volunteer at snow shoveling this coming winter. I am so happy to very soon be getting outdoors more!
In two weeks I will be completing a tutoring program and will soon be tutoring my fellow inmates in GED classes, creative writing, empowering women courses, and more. Great opportunity for me given so many obstacles.
I am making progress in being accepted into the PAWS program. I am currently being recommended to fill a position that will be opening in January. The new puppies will be arriving at the end of December.
As for hobbies, I am drawing a lot and learning to play the piano. Super peace-giving pastimes.
Anyway, I love you all. I truly do. I am human, so it would be dishonest to not share the other side of things. I am battling depression and at times still in shock about where I am and for how long I will be here. One day at a time! Thank you again for your prayers and love.
