How did I get here?

I had known abuse in one form or another for most of my 37 years. But meeting J.D. in the spring of 2001 was to be an episode in my life that would leave me so emotionally wounded that I would spend the next fifteen years trying to find the help I needed to put myself back together again.

How the Heart Grows is my journey to wholeness, and the things that impacted my journey along the way.
