“July 2014 I got the courage to walk away from an abusive relationship. I got punched, spit in the face, verbal abuse as well. You name it, I got it, he kept making promises that he wouldn’t do it again, but that didn’t happen. I stayed because of my kids but it got over bearing so I took my kids and left. My daughter begged me to leave as well so I did.”
“Physical, mental, emotional and financial abuse from my child’s father and also my mother. I ask God to give me the strength to forgive.”
