A Passion For Children

It's taken me a long time to figure out what to do with my life. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to do something worth while. I've been in several fields of work just trying to figure things out. I've been to college three times and dropped out all three. I would begin again thinking that I figured it out, but each time grew weary of the direction I was going in.

While this road has given me a well rounded skill set, it still left me frustrated and discouraged.

Within the past year I have become an aunt and a lot of changes have occurred. I've seen various friends I grew up with fall into good and bad life situations dealing with both the simple and mind-boggling struggles of the real world and the people in it. The more I see this happen, the more I witness the next generation and those after fall into the same unfair and psychologically damaging hands that life deals them.

I no longer wish to simply sit back and hope for the best. I cannot do that. I cannot go into a retail job every day where everyone worries about the prices of this and that customers attitude. I cannot and will not allow this to be my life. There are so many more important things in life to worry about and I want to dedicate my life bettering the lives of children.

My ultimate goal would be to end up working in child protective services. While I understand that a career such as that is an extremely difficult one, I cannot think of a more rewarding life than to spend it bettering the lives of children.

I've been doing a lot of research on what would be required of me and simply ways to get my foot in the door. I am seeking guidance in every area that I can in order to lay out a blueprint of the steps that I need to take in order to get started in this field and would greatly appreciate any input here on this story.

All questions, comments, tips, concerns, etc. are more than welcome.
