Now, Faith is raising Ivey’s 4-year-old son
because Ivey works as an escort
and has no stable home.
“Somewhere along the lines, and I know that it lies with me, I communicated to her that she was worth nothing, and that’s not really how I feel,” Faith says through tears. “She is so valuable, and she is so important, and she has so much potential. And I just want to apologize for my errors as mom, and I hope that from here forward, we can come together.”
