Nikki J is an inspiration for abused and neglected foster children worldwide. Born Darienne Babb in 1982, to a teenaged mother who was unwed and a high school drop-out, was only the beginning of the many challenges she would face. At the age of two, Nikki was introduced to the child welfare system, and by seven years old a ward of the state. For the next eleven years, she was bounced from home to home and institution to institution. Nikki was battered and abused in every way possible, but she still managed to persevere. In 2001, Nikki graduated from Glenville High School in Cleveland Ohio. She then went on to serve her country in the United States Army. Nikki's trials and tribulation as well as accomplishments, are the driving force behind this novel and the founding of NikNak Nation. Nikki's dream is to empower as many troubled youth and displaced adults as possible by sharing her story so they know that anything is possible.
The Pain in the Promise; Child Neglected, God Protected, Beauty Reflected is Nikki J's first book, and is published under NikNak Nation Publishing.
