One summer night, she found herself in the hands of an ugly rapist who had plans to kill her.

This is a story about how she did it and found her way back to light, love and joy.
Losing my son and birthing him, only to say goodbye was gut wrenching and threw my already traumatized soul into something so deep - I didn't think I would make it out. For thirteen years prior to that - I was already in a very dark and suffocating place, suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from a violent attack and rape at the age of sixteen. Losing Joe was more than I thought I could handle - however his loss turned out to be the awakening I needed to finally heal. What happened in the birth room was where it all finally began after years of silence, shame and pain. My story will take you through the entire thirteen years and how I finally learned to breathe into what happened, lean into love and just be.
