As part of a program to help my adopted 4-year-old daughter some years ago, I was required to join the moms’ group. I spent sixteen weeks with eleven mothers who, with their children, were struggling to escape the violence they’d suffered at the hands of their partners.

I learned so much, not the least of which was a profound respect for the strength and determination of these women. It was an amazing experience.
