Absolutely amazing and informative how some people have to do battle to protect their children,
family and themselves from those who are supposed to be the protector, provider and defender of the home. May we be ever mindful of others and their cry for help. Doreen
Riveting and a message that must be shared, Sarah
I love your website! One day I need to sit down and release the years of verbal abuse that went with the 19 years of marriage and write it out. Sometimes, even though I have been divorced for 16 years, I know that those years creep up and grab hold of me when I am in my low points of my life. Thankfully those times grow less and less as life flies by. Marie
