She's A Survivor Because
As a child I grew up in single parent household in the projects. I finished high school and then became a single mother of triplets. I went to nursing school with medically fragile triplets. I was in a domestic violence relationship 15 years ago and almost lost my life at the hands of my abuser. My face was disfigured for months as I had a broken nose, two black eyes and a fractured orbit. My face healed. I later returned to school and pursued my BSN, MSN, and PhD. During the last months of my PhD study my husband passed away unexpectedly. I took time away, and God still allowed me to finish my degree. Truly with God all things are possible.
