My Testimony- TruthOut
This is the first time on my own. I was in a 15yr. relationship with my daughters father. I felt like I could not make it without his support financially. I didn't see a way out. On one occasion I called the police and he took me aside and said if we take him in now how will you support yourself? how will you make it on your own? from then on I told myself not to call the police in fear of not being able to provide for my family. As the yrs. went on It seemed that I forgot the promise to myself to leave and you can make a life without him. But, that old feeling of no if you do it what about food, shelter, transportation? So I stayed knowing the next time he abused me it will be the end of my life or his.
The final breaking point came when my daughter jumped up and said enough dad stop controlling and being jealous of mom, let her live her life. Thats when he proceed to walk passed me and hit me in the face with a bottle as well as abuse our daughter physically. That was the last time for this to happen.
That night he took off to the store to get some cigars from the local store. He was pulled over for non Insurance and had a outstanding Child Support Warrant for his arrest. I believe it was the blessing my family needed to finally leave. It was my opportunity to make a new life, finally I can.
"Thank you in advance for any help you can provide".
