Growing up, I had a wonderful childhood. I grew up in the church with parents who love the Lord. I did well in school but I wasn’t in with the cool kids and they made fun of me. I felt less than, embarrassed and withdrew a little. I was friends with the kids nobody else wanted to be friends with. I went to church, was active in the youth group and I loved it!
Hi, my name is Tasha and I am 31 years old. I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. I spent the first 17 years of my life living with both my parents and brother in a small single wide trailer on the outside of town. Although from the outside it appeared that we had a normal happy life, the inside was much different. To family and strangers, my mother appeared like a wonderful and loving woman, but behind closed doors she was very angry, hateful, and verbally abusive.
