Jamie has lived homeless off and on since she was 14. She is 19 now living in a weekly rate, rundown hotel. At least for the four days paid for by a local church.

Please watch her powerful story. Jamie talks real about life as a runway and youth homelessness. Everything from living under a bridge while pregnant during the winter months to living without food and having to call for help. Thank God for Safe Place and Wichita Children’s Home.

I love Jamie’s candor in her three wishes, but she kind of shocked me at the end. Watch and tell me what you think.

Special thanks to Wichita Children’s Home
