Well done, Kathy!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I'm honoured that you chose my site to share your inspiring journey from codependence to independence. Your use of unpretentious symbolism to share this journey with my visitors and me succeeded in turning a very complex emotional state into an uncomplicated chronicle, one that we can all understand; and you did so honestly and without losing the integrity of your challenging...drive.

An ovation for Independence; be it in Kansas, in another state, or deeply within ourselves. And further applause to counsellors, support groups, and shelters that provide a tow, then a jumpstart, then a targeting compass to assist those who have "broken down" find their way again after getting lost. Congratulations, Kathy, on finding your way. You truly are an inspiration!

I enjoyed reading your story very much. I especially liked the part where the Attorney said you "looked funny" and Coleen said you didn't. I could relate to the overall feeling in this entire story. Thank you
