I was an only child at home with two half sisters living somewhere else so I was pretty used to having all the attention. I was daddy’s little princess since the moment I was born! When I was about 7 I started to feel lonely around the house because I had no one else to play with.
A baby’s cry is an unmistakable sound to the ears of parents, but one morning, the Sweeney’s were not woken up by their baby, as they typically anticipated.

Have you ever seen a child with no soul? Due to the kitchen explosion in my home on November 9, 1996, I was forced to grow up in the burn care wing of St. Christopher’s Children’s Hospital where I was surrounded by children unrecognizable to their own parents due to the severity of their injuries. I was practically raised in an atmosphere of peers where children and teenagers had already given up any happiness, motivation, or drive to move forward left in them before even reaching puberty. However, stuck in this eternal battle of shame and hate towards myself, the love and dedication provided by my nursing staff was what helped me in accepting myself and my burns and move forward in life confident in myself and my ability to become a happy and successful young woman.
