Alexis’ Story

Posted on by Renee Morales

"I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 9 and sometimes I don't realize how quickly I get frustrated. It's not easy, but as time goes by I'm learning to control all my emotions for my son's sake. I love knowing that my son goes to sleep loving me and wakes up loving me no matter what kind of mood I'm in or what happened that day. Being the best mom that I can be to him has been my greatest accomplishment.

Earlier this year I found out I was pregnant again. I was not ready for a second child financially or emotionally. I realized the best thing I could do for that baby was to give someone else the chance to be a parent and raise him the way he deserved to be raised. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make.

I'm not sure where God fits into my story right now. I don't quite have my spiritual life figured out yet. I wonder why he puts me through everything I struggle with and I'm constantly questioning if I have a purpose here. I guess I'm still searching for answers when it comes to God.

I go to Parent Life because it's my second family. I feel like no matter what I say or what goes on in my life I'm not being judged."
