  2. I hope I’m doing this right and this message gets to Carrie Bush. I have been reading your blog and I lived one block from you and we had the same social worker and went to the same school. I am older than you by a few years 5 I think. I don’t know if you remember me but I remember you and all that you told me back in those days. I remember going to the school principal at West Heights and you wanted me to stay with you while you told your story but the adults never let me, I never saw you again. I have always wondered and hoped you got out okay, I’m sorry I couldn’t do more. I hope you are doing well and that your life is happier. When you were little I asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up and you said “loved” I hope you are exactly what you wanted to be.

    1. Hi Nicole, I do remember you…I have never forgotten you and the role you played in my getting out. I remember that you and I used to talk… I think I would go up my street to yours? I’m not sure- for sure, but I am sure I remember you! Your letter to me was so beautiful, sweet and at the same time sad. I’m sorry I’m slow to respond. You are the first person to tell me what I’ve always remembered to be true – but only have my sorted memories and a very large amount of ministry documents for some kind of proof I’ve not made it all up. It means the world to me that you reached out, I sincerely thank you for that.
      When we last saw eachother I was removed that day permantly from my parents. Unfortunately, I ended up moving over 60 times in the following 4 years. I eventually ended up with a very nice foster mom – and she essentially gave me the safe space to grow up from 12-19. There a whole lot of bad stuff between then … but also alot of joy and love.
      I am happily married and have been with my husband 21 years – and we have 3 amazing beautiful children… im loved. It took a long road but I never lost sight of my biggest life goal from as far back as I could remember- to be apart of a loving and safe family.
      I’d love to hear how your life has been…
      I want to also say to you that I am so grateful for everything you did for and with me when we were young. Also, please never apologize- you were a kid and yet you were the one helping me in a time when the adults were supposed to be protecting us. You believed me, that was the number one thing I needed more than anything. Thank you Nicole for being so kind.
      Carrie-Marie Fernandes
