About this scrapbook page:
For the Betrayal Challenge
Besides being the victim of child sexual abuse I was also a victim of domestic violence with several boyfriends and a husband. My ex-husband threatened to kill my several times but I still did not leave him. He finally ended up in prison because of hit and run manslaughter. So while he was in prison I divorced him or I could have ended up as the woman in the poem..
So this page is dedicated to the women who no longer have a voice

Oh my gracious! This poem is soooo powerful in its message! I'm sorry for all those times in your life when you experienced abuse yourself. There must always be moments when those times try to re-surface in your mind. Thank you for entering this page in the challenge and for letting others see the things you have been through and have overcome.

What a powerful message to those who are abused. I am printing this to send to my grand daughter as she continues to live in this type of situation. Right now they are living with another family so hopefully it is now as bad.
