  • Cathleen's Story

    A therapist once asked me, Why dont you feel any anger or resentment toward your parents? I didnt have an answer for her except to say, I remember so little. What I do remember is shrouded in dreams and impressions. I do recall the self-destructive behavior I had during adolescence. I used drugs and alcohol recklessly from age 17 until ...

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. (John 3:16) You were so ugly the nurses in the hospital called you Monkey. I called you Peanut.

  • Joanna's Story

    When I was two, my first abuser came into my life. He was soon to become my stepfather, and by all accounts, it was to be the worst thing that could have happened to us. He was physically abusive to my mother, beating her nearly every day. He beat us as often as he could find excuses for, which meant that if we left our shoes in the living ...

  • Erica's Story

    My parents were ahead of their time. Though I am technically a Baby Boomer, I have always felt a greater kinship with those that are a few years younger than me.

I have had many experiences in my life, some of which have been incredibly painful, some of which have been amazingly joyous. I have experienced love and hate, acceptance and ...
