Anything IS possible, as long a you believe it's possible...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Justine, I do hope you are in a safe and healthy place now. And I hope you are getting some form of counselling. You've certainly had to deal with the lion's share of challenges in your young life. I sincerely hope you are taking your own advice.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

thanks

i am amazed at the strength that i read in your words. you share something so difficult and have been through your share of pain, yet you have so much hope, thanks for being so brave.

my son told me bravery is what you have to be in a bad situation, but courage is a choice you make to deal with the bad situations we all are given in this life. you certainly have a great deal of courage.

have the courage also to get help. i felt so strong myself coming out of really traumatic circumstances, which began to haunt and tear me apart as i got older, had my own children, trying to deal with stresses of raising a family. i definitely feel that if you can find the right help you will have a way of balancing the pain of the past with the pressures of the future.

take care of you. and keep holding onto hope.

me.

That is just crazy! Let's hope to God that your older sister did not die in vain at the hands of your mother.

I'm so sorry
by: Anonymous

I can't believe someone your age (or of any age, really) had to go through this. This is just devastating. I'm so sorry for your loss and your situation. No one should have to deal with something like that. God bless you for your courage and hope and know that you are an amazing, strong person and you can do anything in life. I hope that you use this experience to help others in similar situations.
