Thomas - Forsaken

Back when I was younger, I had loads of faith. At the age of 15 my best friend committed suicide.  I also lost a friend to a drunk driving accident. My mom was an alcoholic and she beat the fuck out of me. I didn't understand how there could be a God

Trena

I found what appeared to be an abandoned trailer park in Luthersville, GA yesterday, so I stopped to explore. As I was driving through, I heard someone holler at me. It was Trena. I told her about the project, and asked if she'd tell me her story. We talked a lot about God and how she felt abandoned by her spiritual family at the local church. 

Tasha

My next door neighbor got me started using drugs. one day I was locked out of my house from school and he offered me some [crack] because he wanted me to have sex with them. After a couple of tries I finally gave in and done it with him. 

Alma

my dad and he would come home drinking almost every night and he would come and line us up and just beat us for nothing and he also molested us. We went through being hungry every day. He had a good job but he took it and spent [his money] on other women. We used to eat peanuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So, finally my mom left him when I was eight.

God say he would never put no more on you than you can bear so I go through these trials and tribulations and the struggle and it hurts. It really hurts. Cause you know you a good person. Deep down inside your heart, you a good person. 

Chelsey

A lady adopted them. I have a boy and a girl. One and two. It hurts that I lost them but I know *tears* that they’re in better hands right now. They’re more taken care of than I could have done right now. So… I’ve got to look at it the best way I can.

Roman

I grew up on a dairy farm in a place called God’s Thumbprint. That’s actually where I’m hiking back to. I have some health issues. I’ve been diagnosed with Leukemia.

Pink

I was driving down a street  known for drugs and prostitution when I saw Pink, making her way towards me with a distinct limp. I asked her about her life. She told me that she had two sons and that she hoped to get married to a good man someday. Then she told me about the accident that changed her life. 

Jenna

I learned how to prostitute at a very young age. I was 16. It was bad, but you learn how to work it, honey. I got my teeth veneered… I did a lot. I worked it.
