“…Caught in a highly abusive relationship it seemed all doors were closed…Turning point was the hand that pulled me out, gave me my strength back, showed me the path and gave me my life back. Today I am leading a very happy peaceful life, raising two normal healthy kids and everyday that passes by I am grateful. "
