While we weren't able to find out much more information about Faith's childhood, we were able to find an original song that she wrote about it, and the lyrics are heartbreaking.

The song goes:

Seattle rain Hide the pain Pouring down my face I walk the city streets, bright light speed And give me strength But I should have guessed I'd be here now all alone Like the child I was Without a home

The song continues:

To love so much And me much less Wanted by many Loved by none This time I've spent It makes no sense And here I am again Alone Like the child I was Without a home

Faith then belts out, "The silence screams and tortures steams... and it's hard to face what we went through, that left me here again alone." Like we said, heartbreaking.

Despite Faith's upbringing, she created her own beautiful family. In this fun picture of her family from her Instagram, Faith captioned, "There’s nothing more important to me than family…we are a little weird and crazy at times and I wouldn’t have it any other way!"

Learning more about Faith's childhood makes us understand why family is the most important thing to her. We are truly rooting for you Faith! We hope you get everything you want in this life.

Make sure to tune into The Golden Bachelor every Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
