Tonight's special guest is Anita E. Wladichuk from New Westminster, BC, Canada, an activist and author of the book 'Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl', a story about a genuine journey of a young girl moving from the darkness to the light. 'I am a survivor" Anita says. "My personal goal is to provide encouragement and inspiration to any person in need because we all want to know that we have someone we can talk with and share our problems with. We need to listen to those who are troubled." She goes on, "I survived abandonment, abduction, and abuse (physical, verbal, emotional, mental, and sexual). My father left my mother a single mother of seven children. My upbringing was horrific. My father said and touched me in inappropriate ways and he did sexually assault me. Because of this, I was traumatized which took a lifetime of healing. My second oldest brother ended up committing suicide. My family never talked about what happened to them and about our brother." Anita continues, "My mother was verbally, emotionally, and mentally abusive. She would say things that would tear my heart out and lower my self-esteem and sense of self-worth. My brother was physically abusive." Anita got busy in recovery. I’m busy now marketing my book, 'Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers)'. I believe in my book. It is about child abuse but written metaphorically and inspirationally. It is my story, a true story. I’m also busily serializing my second book, 'Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Sequel)' and marketing it as a Newsletter called. 'The Ghostly Owl'. I am currently involved in Toastmasters which has helped me to find my voice and return to school to obtain a B.Ed. Degree."
