‘I’ll get better, mom.’ That was 2 days ago. Today, he’s high again. I’ll never give up on my baby.’: Mom says she’ll ‘always have hope’ for son addicted to heroin

“My son has served 10 months in prison, several months in jail, has been in 5 different rehabs. Each time I think, ‘This will be it. He’ll stay sober and start to live life,’ and each time he relapses. I worry every day I’ll get that call telling me he’s dead. At least when he’s in prison, I know he’s alive. My son is not an addict, or a problem. He is just suffering, and I will always love him no matter what.”

‘I heard the devastating words, ‘There’s nothing there.’ There was no heartbeat anymore.’: Woman urges ‘second opinion’ after ultrasound mistake

“My body still felt pregnant even though I had already been bleeding, and I just felt weird. I decided to call my good friend who works at another OBGYN.

They didn’t know if there was a twin, a pregnancy located somewhere else, or what it was.”

‘I woke up in jail, my hands and ankles handcuffed because I’d refused the breathalyzer test. My kids had been in the backseat.’: Woman beats addiction after several years of drug, alcohol abuse

“I drank nightly, but not always excessively. I thought I was in control. A few months later, I found myself living a literal nightmare. Simply getting drunk wasn’t enough. I’d drink well past the point of feeling good. But I wasn’t getting drunk until after I put my daughter to bed. I always got to work on time and performed well each day, so I refused to believe I had a problem.”

‘I was pregnant with triplets, until I started to bleed. Things went from 0 to 60 in the matter of an hour.’: Mom loses all 3 triplets, gives birth to ‘rainbow baby’ and adopts ‘sweet, perfect’ boy

“The nurses assured me it must’ve been an accident since I had no pain. I listened and didn’t think anything of it. Huge mistake. Not 24 even hours later, I was delirious with a fever and untreated ruptured sac. Once again, alone at the hospital, I had to deliver my babies and say goodbye. I lost not one, but all three of my triplets.”
