I have been a vicitm of an abusive ex, who severly abused my children, and myself. My kids are permanently, phisically and emotionally damaged for life. I will never be the same. I am forever hurt. I want to expose my story, but not sure how to do it. Please email me and let me know if you have suggestions. Thank you, Kelly, Shelby, Mallory, Brett and Ty.
