The first time that I spoke with Debra from Door of Hope 4 Teens, for the first time in years, I felt like someone actually cared. At the time I was surrounded by so much darkness, I truely believed that I was going to die unhappy. After a few months of talking with Debra and the counselors from Door of Hope I ended up moving to New York to live with Debra and her family. I lived "in the Door of Hope" for two months, and in those two months I learned what it meant to be a Child of God. I recieved so much support, love, and encouragment that I was able to break free from a huge bondage in my life while living with Debra and I could never thank her enough. Door of Hope 4 Teens has been there for me every step of the way in my road to recovery, and I can say from my heart that without Debra, Door of Hope 4 Teens, and God I would not be where I am today.
