“It hurts because I’ve grown up and I haven’t had my mom there,” Jade said. “My heart was hurting because my real dad committed suicide when I was 6 months old.”
In regards to her parents addiction, Jade said that she feels “like my real dad never loved me enough to stay and now I feel like, even when I have a second chance at a father, I feel like he never loved me enough to stay clean.”
Tyler gave Jade some advice, since he has been through similar situations. “One thing that me and Cate have learned is that boundaries are the most important thing,” he told her. “We have to force them.”
Jade’s parents were arrested when police officers were called to inspect a possible overdose inside their vehicle. The police officer then found marijuana and other drug paraphernalia, including a metal pipe. The officers also found a crystal substance that was suspected to be meth, as well as suboxone pills.
Jade’s mother had previously been arrested back in 2014 for possession of cocaine and theft. She had confessed to buying crack cocaine before entering a store and attempting to steal two items of clothing.
