I'm at a loss for words. My heart aches for the couple's loss and struggles. I'm so glad it's gradually getting better, but my heart goes out to them and I really, really hope the sun is right around the corner.
I feel so angry about the situations the government's placed upon the couple. And honestly, I commend them for finding the silver lining and staying positive. A lot of people aren't able to do that, and they're filled with anger and resentment, but I can feel the love they have for their family, and I am rooting for them in all their future endeavors.
A Single Mother Shares Her Experience with Domestic & Substance Abuse
“In the game of life, survival is only part of the battle.”—Gad Saad
“Chasing the Dark” is an impactful and honest addition to the long list of addiction recovery books. Joleen and Justin weave a dual narrative to share their life stories starting from childhood and through years of abuse and trauma until they met each other at Joleen’s workplace by a fated chance.
In “Chasing the Dark,” Joleen shares how she became a teenage mother, got tangled up with a drug dealer, and survived an abusive marriage with a U.S. veteran, only to fall in love with another. In a parallel narrative, Justin shares how despite the horrific nature of his Navy career, he had managed to come out of it with his sanity intact…mostly.
The couple is now trying to save Joleen’s youngest daughter from the same fate as her mother and is taking her grandson’s custody for the family’s benefit.
