This is a strong survivor who is telling her story this day beginning soon after their son was born. Pregnancy is oftentimes a high risk for domestic violence since the abuser often doesn't know how to show their love to more than one person, often signifying that, just because the flags aren't flying high before pregnancy in a relationship with an abusive personality, it doesn't mean that one may not necessarily become suddenly entrapped with an abusive partner.
She was kidnapped and tortured before he went to prison for 18 months. Later she found herself going back with him after he was out - thinking that perhaps he was changed?. This left her in a no way to escape situation, but is here to tell her story. Not everyone will experience domestic violence to this extent but tune in to learn what developed as she met this man, during their relationship, and how she finally left - stronger than she thought she'd be.
Does this sound like something that you -- or maybe a friend or family member -- has gone through. Come learn the strength she found to finally leave for good.
