Wow. What an amazing story. It was hard to get through chapter 1and some of chapter 2. I read the book all at once. You are a truely an amazing person to share your story. I sincerely hope that by sharing your experiences it will help someone who may be experiencing the same trauma as you did. Anxiously awaiting the next book (I hope) to include the happier times. You will continue to be a mentor and a strong part of our community. Keep reaching for the stars and God bless you.
