I was a motherless child, separated from her at the age of 3. I never saw my brother again and I had an
on-and-off again relationship with my sister "my mother's daughter", may she RIP. I was abused emotionally, physically and sexually for years.
Why am I writing about this? Because, Jesus was with me and He kept me through it all. When I didn't love myself He loved me. He loved me in spite of all my faults. When I was not able to mentally go on, He held me. Sometimes I could literally feel the comfort of His loving arms around me. I pray that my story will help other Survivors with their healing, and give them the strength to know they can make it through it all!
