Serenity Lane


"After many years of searching for the ability to like myself and cope with my everyday problems, I am quite confident I have found it here at Serenity Lane.  If any ever asked me when my birth date is, I shall answer May 3, 1973.  After my stay here at Serenity Lane, I feel like I have been born again."
