Hi! My name’s brandy Johnson I just joined I have been sober since January 17,2023 I am looking for a sponsor currently have a DCS case and working hard right now at getting my son back I am looking for a place that’s what’s holding me back at getting my son right now I live on the west side of Indianapolis If anyone knows of a FELONY FRIENDLY PLACE I NEED ONE BAD ON INFORMATION PLEASE ANYONE WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT! THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE
Congrats on your sober time
For you and your son. I’m sure if you stay in track things will work out for you
If you are looking for a sponsor I would recommend attending some meetings and listening. Ask someone who you admire and inspires you.
I was fresh out of rehab that I checked myself in and left after a couple weeks. I was homeless and broke. I went to help in crisis and creokes they helped me with shelter while I looked for a job I also went to the Methodist church they helped me to. This was in Oklahoma. But I’m sure there’s funds where you are sense you are a addict. That’s what I took to the table. I had to really put in hard searching for a job because of my felony. And I know how hard it is to get your child I had my 3 year old killed in a rollover DUI my 8 now 9 year old daughter was ejected put in ICU and foster care. I wasn’t even there but I was homeless going through a break up with the mother. I had to jump every hoop but I won. Give in to recovery and fight for your kid. I pray it works you are going to have the fight of your life.
Thank you so much I appreciate it
Anyone else from Indianapolis on here
I do have a great job I work at UPS I unload! Been there for one year and three months I just need to find a place that’s all that’s holding me back from closing this DCS case I have been doing everything I need to and also getting in every drug screen clean it’s been a long journey but starting to get discouraged for not finding a place due to getting denied for being a felon sucks 8
Don’t give up bc then your given up on everything you’ve worked for. We must learn to live life on life terms. For me in the past i wanted it when i wanted and on my time. This program has taught me things are not always gonna go my way or when i want to. My Higher Power does for me on his time and gives me what i need. Continue during what you are doing and it will occur for you. The promise will come true sometimes quickly or sometimes slowly. Wish you well.
Thank you I really appreciate your words means a lot
