I Had Stability, Hope, Encouragement, and Love

I am a survivor of childhood sexual and physical abuse. My breakthrough happened when I gave birth to my son. And, it’s been a series of continual breakthroughs ever since. I was a foster child who was bounced around from home to home, my last one was with my perpetrator. Afterwards I was sent to a “juvenile home” where I stayed for 1.5 years. It was when one of the psychologists and his wife who took me in at 14 where, for the first time in my life, I had stability, hope, encouragement, positivity, caring and love. I honestly don’t know where or what I would be today without their caring and without the birth of my son. I am a work in progress and yes, some days are very hard still and I am glad I found this site.
