Hello God TV, family, and friends, and supporters. It’s awesome to be with you today. My name is Reggie Dabbs and I just have a couple of minutes for you. When I was eight years old my mom and dad came to school for a parent teacher conference. Little did I know, that something would happen that would change life forever. Have you ever had something happen that you wish you could change or that you wish had never happened? It happens in all of your lives.
At eight years old, after leaving the parent-teacher conference, I found out that my mom and dad weren’t my mom and dad. You see all my friends parents they were young, but my parents were just a little older, and I remember asking them on the way home that night, “Why are you so old.” It was that night at the kitchen table that they told me that I was in foster care and that they were not my mom nor my dad but that they loved me.
From eight years old to twenty-one I did not want to live. I figured if my own mom didn’t want me who would want me, who would care about me.
Have you ever had something happen in your past that make you think “I’m done, I can’t do this anymore?”
