Alexandria: I couldn't even believe I was there, but having the kids with me just kind of made it seem unreal. How could this have happened? I didn't see an end in sight.
Anderson: Did you feel guilty at times?
Alexandria: Every single day. Sometimes I found it hard to even look at them. … These are people I brought into the world, and I'm responsible for them. To feed them, to clothe them, to house them…and I couldn't do that. Now, that's being a failure to me.
Thanks to Mom's Place, a community organization that helps single mothers get back on their feet, Alexandria now lives in her own home. She's working part-time and is back in school.
