Adriana’s Testimony

My name is Adriana and this is my testimony. Growing up was pretty rough for me. I went from foster home to foster home, the group home to group home. I felt like a paycheck for some of them-like a lost soul with no real place to lay my head. I didn’t even feel love until I was 15 years old. That’s when I was adopted by my Mom and Dad. I finally had a home with parents that not only loved me, they really wanted me-I had a family. I had a bedroom that was mine. I was safe, wanted, and loved. For the first time in my life, everything was going great, and it really was for awhile, but that’s when I met and fell in love with what I thought was the love of my life. Shortly after we met, I found out I was pregnant with our daughter, which was the best thing that ever happened to me. But it turned out that my Mr. Right was Mr. Wrong and my life began to fall apart. I became very depressed to the point I didn’t even want to get out of bed and I fell in my darkness. In order to deal with my pain I would cut and burn myself and numb myself with drugs and alcohol which helped for awhile, but wasn’t enough. So I tried ending the pain for good by trying to take my life. In my past I had heard about Set Free but I wasn’t willing to get help. However, I was so lost and broken and I knew something had to change. So I picked up the phone and reached out for help. That’s how I got to Set Free Women’s Ranch in Phelan, CA. To be honest at first I thought- Oh My…reading all day long in the Bible. What did I get myself into? But I opened my mind, my ears and my heart and I began to learn who God was and what He could do in my life, and my relationship began to grow. I even decided to show my love by being baptized. I am so grateful for the ranch and all the women there that have helped me on this journey. It has been a true blessing and the beginning of my new future in Christ.
