“I love myself!”



After being severely beaten by her husband, Linda spent one month in the hospital in critical condition. When she finally began to heal, she could barely remember her life before her husband except for the daily beatings and constant berating by her husband. “I spent ten years of my life in hell. I will no longer allow anyone to manipulate me. I love myself.”

Linda shared her story with 100 guests at a domestic violence graduation ceremony at Amanecer. She clearly remembered when she walked through Amanecer’s doors. Tired, but determined she met with the therapist once a week for a year. “I had to rebuild my inner strength” she addressed the crowd “and Amanecer helped me get my life back”. Lorraine has gained self-confidence as she now recognizes the patterns of the abuse and sets boundaries, which have led her to embrace the opportunity of a healthy relationship.
