Thank you for your interest in helping to fund my memoir. 

This memoir I've been writing for last year. My story is not unique its universal. When you think about your life you never imagine it at 5 being turned upside down with divorce, abused sexually, emotionally and physically. Struggling to fit, suicidal and confused I desperatly searched to find my voice and a safe place to call home. 

I turned to alcohol to cope and deal with abuse and abandonment. Many years I spent trying to navigating being a juvenile delinquent and a drop out. My lack of emotion and self respect forced me to be an adult at 16 years of age. Death, Loss and pain seemed to follow me like a dark cloud when all I yearned for was healing. 

Jumping from one pain to the next it seemed as though abuse was a normal passage of time. Finally escaping an abusive relationship in my late teens to early twenties I was forced to look at the woman I had become or in my circumstance "A Damaged Girl."

Life Is the ultimate test of ones humanity and mental capabilities as I've grown into my 30's and after having a child I was faced with another challenge learning to love myself to love my son. Postpartum depression and healing came with time. You are not alone, you have a voice and I will be the light to help you share your pain and heal with support, empathy and compassion.

I Hope my message will reach and help support anyone who has struggled with;

Abuse, pain and shame.

That is why I wanted to write this book. To give that damaged girl a chance to be heard and understood. 

And lastly so that my readers know:

I Believe You
