    Welcome, Maria. It's wonderful to meet you here on PulseWire.

    I'd like to congratulate you on getting out of your abusive relationship, and recommend that you get in touch with Tabby (, who is from Kenya and who has also recently left her husband because of abuse. Perhaps you two can provide support for each other and offer words of encouragement and inspiration.

    I look forward to getting to know you as you discover PulseWire!

    All the best to you and your daughters, Corine

    Hej Maria

    You are a woman of substance

    The biggest inheritance you can give to your daughters is finding a safer place for them and making sure their mother is well and sound. I applaud you for making that bold step to freedom and wellbeing

    coming from an abusive home where my mother was no equal partner to her husband i understand well what imagery stays in in the mind of a child. But I am happy for you that You are out of that situation.and you have put focus in helping the girls heal too

    You are a blessing
