If I never live to see another day I have accomplished much and done all these small hands can do. I have won many court hearings to mine and my daughter’s full behalf in Rockdale and The Alcovy Judicial Circuit having many judges to our full favor regarding all my girls who I never abandoned or gave up on to spite our over night separation due to my being in the hospital for family violence and depression and Codependency to Mr. Sasser as the caregiver as Honorable Bills so noted in her prepared proposed Opinion as Mr. Sasser’s attorney to the courts in Rockdale County. But I never abandoned my children and never gave up on the situation. I carried the full weight of the issue and always pressed forward for the best court records ever so as to leave behind a legacy that my children would be proud of. And proud to call me mom if they were to ever do their own research of the issue. Feeling lost and raped at times myself by the state that failed us. As they all have no formal education and numerous children to their name with no education to their names as Mr. Sasser has personally signed for two of our daughter’s to abandon their education’s as he was agreeable to this. And my girls just continue to have child after child with the state of GA footing the bill. I love all my children and grandchildren but this state and Rockdale County turned my children into statistics. Ugly statistics by alienating me their mother from their life. Never having not one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrong doing as a mother nor as a wife in over 20 years to my behalf yet separated due to family violence and my being the victim and depression that followed even though to become a Certified Peer Specialist in the State of GA requires the following:
I want this state of GA to know that there have been 1000+ Georgia Certified Peer Specialists Since October 2001.
And the requirements include:
> Candidates must have diagnosis of mental illness or a dual diagnosis of mental illness and addictive disease and must desire to identify themselves as a person with mental illness current or former consumer of mental health services.
> Applicants must hold a high school diploma or GED and may be requested to provide a copy of this document.
> Must demonstrate strong reading comprehension and written communication skills as indicated on their responses on the pre – test which is part of the application.
> Must have demonstrated experience with leadership, advocacy or governance.
> Must be well grounded in recovery
These facts are taken directly from the Certified Peer Specialist brochure.
The motto of the CPS being “Each One Reach One.”
I have worked now as a Nursing Assistant for some time now and have thoroughly enjoyed my patients. A task that this State of Georgia would have sworn I would never accomplish but yet I have without fail and with great joy. I am still working towards my CPS Certification but for the mean time am employed with two companies working as a nursing assistant to the physically and mentally challenged and the elderly. I am now in search of an office position with a doctor’s office or Emergency Room or Urgent Care as a Medical Assistant. Hoping to possibly work for View Point Health in the very near future. As I am a graduate of New Rock, The Respect Institute and The Ga Peer Support Institute training classes.
As I visited the Vines Botanical Gardens and took in the beauty of the land and God’s glory it made me very thankful for the wonderful mentors in my life and the fact that I have been able to be so successful over the last ten years. Now continuing with my career in the health field. So very thankful for great friends,greater mentors and a wonderful Church family at Eastridge Community Church in Covington.
With a wonderful boyfriend who treats me like gold and cares for my every need without fail to the best of his ability.
Life is going wonderfully right now just wanting to further my career in the health field so I ask for your continued prayers for my career.
I will be visiting Vines Botanical Gardens more often this Spring and Summer with Mark, too. It is very near his house and a great spot for him to get out and visit.
Working towards more goals this Spring of a Women’s Prison Ministry and furthering my career in the health field working with some very wonderful people and wonderful families.
Along with a great blog at The Covington News for nearly 4 years now hoping to one day in my future have my very own memoir.
Working on future potential applications in the health field today.
