“Know that there are decent and good people out there who will love you the right way. I now have a wonderful husband that stands beside me, encouraged me every step of the way through…school, and treats me with the utmost respect. I am happier than I have ever been in my life. I have a wonderful career...I am actively involved in my church and have a supportive church family. My relationships with my family and children have been restored and we are closer than ever. There is hope and help out there. Victims need to reach out to grab it.” ~ Domestic violence survivor
