Story of Transformation

Emily

Shannon: Daughter of the King

“I was a nurse…..and an addict” Shannon quietly confesses. Making eye contact she states with conviction, “I am more than a mom, a woman, a former addict and a nurse. I am the daughter of the King!”

Years of addiction to pain medication, jail time and in and out of rehab centers, Shannon is currently two years sober. This month she and her 19 month old son will celebrate her one year anniversary at Casa Carol. “EVERYTHING” she shouts out when asked what New Life Mission means to her. The life skills classes have taught her how to parent her son. The financial classes have taught her how to budget, paying for car repairs with a savings account. “I never even knew how to save before!”

“Five years from now?” Shannon repeats back when asked where she sees herself in the future. “Being a homeowner, a nurse again and raising my son! God brought me this far…he’s got plans for me!”
