My name is Reminisce Jacobs, and the story of my life is an incomplete story with gaps and missing pages that make it hard to make sense of. For years I was ignored, moved from home to home and was never able to settle anywhere. All I ever wanted was a family to love and care for me. Someone to at least love me for me, but no I was not good enough for that. The life I lead is a lonely one but manageable. I have three square meals a day and a place to sleep so I cannot complain too much but I want more. I need more out of life, I hunger for a purpose, a reason to keep my faith and find out the woman I am supposed to be. I maybe only 16 years old but I feel like there is more to desire for in life than it appears. I recognize that I am here for a reason because God spared me but what could it be?

My entire life has been a mystery that I cannot solve. Hospital records sealed, no records on my birth parents, pretty much no trail of breadcrumbs to follow. I need to be aware and yearn to know about my past. Like whom my parents were and learn about what made me who am I today; Where did I get my intelligence from, my heritage all the things a person deserves to know about themselves. I need answers but I hope that I do not regret digging up what has been buried and hidden for a reason. The orphanage always finds ways to derail or keep things from me as if my past is dangerous.

Since the day I was born, I constantly felt like I was never truly alone as if there is someone or something continuously watching me. I cannot explain it but If I ever told anyone I probably would be in a crazy house. But I know I am not crazy, I see that something is coming, and it does not feel right. I never gotten a feeling of comfort, it was a consistent feeling of danger or an evil presence. I never really been a believer of the supernatural, but I cannot shake this feeling. It seems the older I become the stronger the feeling the grows. I do not know where to start my journey, but I identify that I must. I do not see what is in store for the future, but I need to find my answers and fast before it is too late.
