My name is Tamara Bennett. I moved to Eastman to be around extended maternal family. Family is precious and sacred.
Then the nightmare began. My beautiful child became the victim of a disastrous nightmare called “drugs.” Then came the enabling... doing things that, in my mind, were helping her only to find out this nightmare was just beginning. I was completely blindsided... so blinded by love of my child. I became isolated thinking everyone was against me, wondering where I went wrong spiraling into a deep dark depression.
In small towns, law enforcement have very limited resources available, staying tied up responding to frantic calls from families expecting them to handle these situations. In reality, there is nothing they can do. They know first-hand these families are in denial.
Only after suffering pure hell do families actually accept what they are dealing with. I will never give up on my child.... I am finally learning to deal with my own emotions. Only then can I be rational and helpful to my precious child.
My daughter is lost in the dark but I know that God is watching her and waiting for the right time to intervene in her life. I am here for any family who wants my love and support.
