I used to think that my sexual abuse was my fault. It wrecked my life for the most part. I didn’t know what was happening and I didn’t know how to stop it. All four times I knew one of them personally. I was scared, felt alone, and didn’t have the support I needed at that time. But I am glad that I got the tools I needed from the Saprea Retreat. I am proud to say that I reclaimed my hope and that I am no longer broken.

So thankful for the supporters that I now have.
