Unfamiliar with Simone’s story?
The 20-year-old’s mother was unable to take care of she and her siblings due to a crippling drug addiction forcing Simone to seek refuge in the foster care system. By God’s grace she was adopted by relatives who supported her as she broke the bonds of her past to face the glory of her future.
