New Waverly, IN – Sixteen-year-old Summer Chambers of New Waverly is a very strong and determined young lady. Like most young people her age, she has had to navigate the typical problems that all young people in their early teens have to face. School, friends, and family issues can be difficult for any teen, but even more so for Summer who grew up being the daughter of a mother and stepfather who were addicts.
Summer first learned of her parents’ addiction problems at a very young age. She recalls walking in on her mother injecting drugs with a syringe in her bedroom. As a very young girl, she remembers going on “drug runs” without really knowing what was going on. Sometimes the trips would last three to four hours. Once her family returned home from these trips, she recalls random people showing up to her home, going to the bathroom and then leaving as quickly as they came in.
Her parents’ addiction forced Summer to begin caring for her three younger sisters. By age nine, the stress of dealing with her mother’s addiction had led her to begin to self-harm.
Summer and her sisters were first removed from her Mother’s custody at the age of nine. Things got better for a while and the children were allowed to return home. They were removed again by the Department of Child Services when Summer was just 13 years old. All the children were placed with her Grandparents where she resides today.
