A poem about her triumph over adversity from a reader:

I could write to you about a grown up run away child that really … Loved to love-
Got beat up by a man that I loved
That was 2009
I went to Kauai
Walked and swam
Looked at beautiful things
I returned to the scene of the crime
Took my power back
Did 9 ceremonies on some land
Then I moved to the city
By the river
I love my life!

I love my children who are men now- I love the choices I made as a younger woman- healing is provided when sought
