For my daughter dad

My daughter's dad was a heroin addict when I first met him. I didn't know what he was doing until I was 5 months pregnant with my daughter. He finally sat me down and told me and I was so not happy because I was addicted to pain pills 5 years ago. He was in and out of detox centers trying get better but it didn't work and I even took him 2 the Berea police officer so they can put him in a rehab but had a really bad felony so they couldn't help him. He got thru my whole pregnancy, was there with me when she was born. But after that, he just went downhill. Got in trouble with the law 2 times in the same year so I had 2 kick him out so he was homeless all summer of 2017 and the fall too. And March 7 2018 they foundh is body on I-71 and W-25 in Cleveland, all decomped so we don't know what happened to him because we didn't talk since Sep 2017 that was the last time I heard from him. Now my 17 months daughter don't have her father because he let heroin beat him. I'm trying, walking in memory of him and my recovery.
