Charles: A New Creation

I was lost, but now I’m found.
I was hopeless, but now I have hope.


Hello my name is Charles.   I’m 30 years old.   When I was six months old I was adopted.  I have struggled with addiction for 16 years of my life.  I never really knew God loved me as I grew up in a dysfunctional family. Under the circumstances, I began lashing out.  I found it easier for me to disconnect from reality through drugs and alcohol.  I felt hopeless and lost.  I used up and turned away anyone who ever loved me.  So many times I tried to get back on track, but each time it only ended in failure.
