Featured MELD Parent: David
David Scott, 42, became a biological father when he was a teenager. But it wasn’t until a personal crisis later in life and a change of heart that came from God that Scott became a dad.
“I was more of an absentee father. I ran the streets, did my own thing,” he said. “If I could go back to do it all again, I would do things differently, but you can’t change the past.”
At an all-time low, locked up on suicide watch at Rockford Memorial Hospital, a pastor came to him.
“It is never too late to do the right thing and be the person you so desperately want to be,” the pastor told Scott. They prayed together, and Scott asked for forgiveness.
“Everything changed,” he said.
