jared's STORY:

Jared's father died when we was very young. His mother was a prostitute, alcoholic, and drug addict. By the time he was six, his mother abandoned Jared and his siblings to live in a home closer to town and work as a prostitute. Jared's mother would frequently return to their hut, drunk, and would abuse them and chase them away from the hut they had always known as home. One night when Jared's mom returned to the hut and attacked Jared with a knife. After this incident Jared and his siblings decided to never return home. No relatives would accept Jared and his siblings because of their disdain for the mother. All of Jared's siblings except for one sister have been beaten to death or put in jail. This sister was taken in by an uncle, but the uncle would not take Jared. After an unknown amount of time on the streets, Jared was taken in by Uncle Fred along with 7 other street boys.

Jared is quite new to Saving Grace, but is so loved and has a bright future ahead of him!
