Kaitlyn was a hard-working 16 year old. She had been active in sports, soccer, and competition cheerleading. She held a job and maintained an “A” average. She had a great personality and to know her was to love her. She had a big heart for people. During cheerleading practice when Kaitlyn was in 8th grade, she tore her ACL. After surgery, she was prescribed pain medicine.

After Kaitlyn recovered, she tried to go back to cheering, but couldn''t get her knee to work the same as it used to. She was left without any sports or activities. She felt left out during her recovery and lost connection with her friends. It is very hard when you are in middle school and your whole world gets turned upside down, especially when you have to find new friends.
Kaitlyn struggled with prescription addiction for 2 years. The first year we had no idea. The signs were there, but the last thing a parent wants to do is admit their own child is dealing with drug abuse! In 2010, things had gotten out of control. I was being called to pick her up from the police department, which became a normal thing for us. I can''t tell you how many times I begged for help! I ended up charging my daughter with assault. As bad as I felt, I took a deep breath and thought that everything was going to be ok. Finally!

This is your personal invitation to come out and learn more about Kaitlyn’s mother’s story and Project Bedroom on November 3rd.

 

In the event of inclement weather, please check your local news station. Look for Davidson County Government information.
