Addict at 15, Prostitute at 19, Mom and Student at 26

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Robyn Potter says she started off in a family where it was O.K. to drink or smoke pot.  Then she says when she was 15 years old, a boyfriend introduced her parents to methamphetamine, and that’s when she says her life started to spiral out of control.

Fox 4′s Abby Eden and Photojournalist Matthew Hensley spoke to Robyn Potter about how she made the transition from meth addict, to crack addict, to prostitute, to a woman who is choosing every day to make her life better.
