U.S. Army Reserve Family’s Love exceeds boundaries

 

U.S. ArmyFort Bragg, NC – “Life before we moved here wasn’t good. We used to fight a lot,” said 14-year-old Olivia.

“We all stayed in one room, on one bed,” added her 15-year-old sister Emma. “I always slept on the edge.”

At an early age, both girls are well versed in what various illegal drugs are and how they are used.

“I got scared when they did drugs,” Emma explained. “They did them all: needles, pot, meth and spice. Their moods were up and down, up and down, all the time.”

For years Emma and Olivia lived in a three-bedroom home with nine other people. In Kentucky the two were exposed to drugs, explicit sexual scenes and verbal altercations that would sometimes become physical.
