I met Cheryl in Burlington, Vermont. Cheryl is pregnant and currently couch surfing.

Cheryl’s homelessness is a result of several bad relationships, some of which were abusive. Before you judge her, keep in mind life on the streets is not a normal life. It’s a horrible existence willed with lots of pain. Some people escape with drugs, some escape through relationships. For a single female “survival sex” may be the only way to survive.

At a young age Cheryl was sexually assaulted. She then grew up in foster homes, which also attributed to her being homelessness

    Cheryl, you are a strong, together person and I’m sure you will make it through.  Sometimes everything turns against good people but then luck turns around.  Maybe people will see that and offer you a job & the chances you need now.  I hope one day you are able to sue for the ppl responsible for not monitoring your abusive foster care family.  Horrendous!  You can get through this.

    It feels so unrealistic that such things happens today. I feel so bad for her and those people who have get through all that, I am shocked and angry! Ò^Ó I hope they will get a long and painful death!
    But mostly I hope Cheryl get an appartment now and can start over and get a good life.
