|December 14th - Week 9: Miracle
Hi my name is Miracle Thomas and I am 20 years old. I attend Indian River College and am studying Pharmacy. I am a member of the Treasure Coast Chapter of Florida Youth SHINE. I was born into foster care and placed in relative care where I stayed for 11 years. In that placement, I was abused mentally and physically by my caregiver. I was then placed in foster homes at the age of 15 until I aged out. Because of the abuse I was hurt and confused and lacked motivation to do anything. I wasn’t concerned about my future. However, that changed when I was placed in a loving foster home and met people in the system that pushed me and supported my success.
Participating in Digital stories was a healing process for me that I didn’t know I needed. I want people to know that it only takes one person to change a life and no matter what you go through it is never too late to start healing.
I hope you enjoy my story.
