Domestic Violence Awareness Month

DVAM Challenge: Follower Participation 3

We didn’t think it was possible, but this week’s DVAM Challenge participation has been even greater than last week’s. We are so thankful to have readers, friends/followers and supporters like you that are committed to ending domestic violence. In honor of your contribution, here are a few of this week’s participants.

Thank you again for your participation. We hope that you’ll finish strong and keep up with our DVAM Challenge until the end of the month.

    It has been 3 weeks since I got a temp. restraining order, packed my belongings, my 3 dogs and cat and moved to another state. I finally found a place I could afford on my own that allowed me to have all my dogs with me. I know I have done the right, healthiest and safest thing I ever could for myself and for them, but some days I find myself slipping into myself and getting so scared. I MUST reach out for help and not isolate myself like i have done for so long out of embarressemnt and shame. I pray for inner strenght and guidancer and know each day will bring a brighter light. Keep moving forward and only look back to remind myself of the pain, fear and confusion I left behine….
