While I have been blessed to have never encountered domestic violence, I am very close to someone who has. I couldn’t be happier that she was able to get away from him but because he is the father of her beautiful children, he will always be part of her life. Thankfully he isn’t physical with her anymore and she has become immune to his insults but until the last child turns 18, she must tolerate him since the justice system can’t/won’t help. It’s a blessing that he has pretty much gotten bored and moved on but every so often he gets drunk and wants to make contact with them. She has so many walls built up around her that I think they might never come down but I want her to know that I am here for her. She suffered in silence and I wish she had shared her secret with me while it was happening so that I could stand with her and against him. Because I didn’t know what was happening I couldn’t fully support her then but I want her to know that I would have. So, in her honor I share this card.

    Your coloring is awesome and your sentiment is perfection. Women in domestic violence relationships often try to hide it from their loved ones. I’m sure your friend is glad to have your support now. Thank you for raising your voice in support of victims of domestic violence at the Hop to Stop.

  2. Oh Cyndi, I’m sure your friend knows how much you support her and love her too.
    It’s so difficult for this abused women to leave, specially if there are children in the picture.
    I truly hope your friend will be safe and this man will get some help.
    Big hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.
