Please understand that I am a survivor NOT an expert and I share my experiences to raise awareness for us all. If you are unable to find an organisation from an internet search or feel uncomfortable calling them for any reason, seek a referral from your medical practitioner. There is help out there and you have a right to be heard so that you can heal and lead the fullest life you deserve, free from shame, guilt and monsters.
Maria buried her past, lost her sister to domestic abuse, and then had a daughter. Compelled to protect, her story now demands its voice because danger prevails with her shamed silence.
From Cradle to Brave is just one lone voice from the collective silence. Maria tells her story with dignity, sensitivity and compassion for the millions of women that invisibly walk alongside her. A poetry book of heartbreaking truth that raises awareness for them all.
