Growing up going form one foster home to another like a game piece on a no-win board can shatter your view of yourself and the world. In my memoir, "I Swear to tell the truth, the Whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth, So Help Me God" I expose the thoughts and feelings I experienced as I struggled over the past two years to make sense of a life shattered by childhood abandonment, neglect, and abuse. It's difficult for people who live in secure homes to understand how being deprived of simple things like safety, security, and warmth can make you seek these things even in destructive ways. Even with the support of different social services, nothing seemed to fill the emptiness growing inside me, an emptiness I desperately crave to fill. For the past two years I struggled to escape the pain of being unwanted by seeking comfort in the world of alcohol, drugs, and sexual addiction three worlds that have nearly destroyed me.
