I met Joseph and April walking down the road in Columbus, GA. They came to Columbus to get away from their problems, back home in Orlando, Florida and make a fresh start.
Joseph: Last year on my birthday, I came home from taking a bike ride with my oldest stepson Shane and when we got home, my 6 year old son Collin and 5 year old daughter Samantha had learned to ride their bikes without training wheels. That was one of the best days.
BW: Where are the kids now?
Joseph: They’re with their grandparents, while we’re in transition.
BW: How long have you been out here?
Joseph: This is actually new to me. I came to Columbus to try to change my surroundings so I could change what I was doing.
BW: You mean like addictions?
Joseph: Well… we all have addictions. If you put anything else before God or love anything before him, he’ll take it from you or at least make you suffer until you come back to him.
