Melinda said...

My dream is to finally get the courage to leave my abuser. I just want to be able to do this safely for me and my children. I've done it before but had gotten sucked back into him. I also had thoughts that I can't do it on my own. But finding inspiring people that have courage to step out of the box and pursue their dreams give me and many others hope that all is never lost no matter what the age or circumstances. God bless!
