After Smith found out she was pregnant in October 2018, she entered a women’s shelter that referred her to a recovery house for young moms in Kelowna. Her son Taysen was born healthy on June 9.
She is now in recovery and devoted to caring for her child. She has reconnected with family, grateful they never gave up on her. She has become a volunteer with A Way Home Kamloops, a non-profit that advocates for homeless youth.
