When I grow up, I will get married and have children; life is going to be wonderful. A fairytale that all little girls hope and wish for when they get older.
Life wasn’t a fairytale for Petite. Life was real.
Growing up and the changes of life were not exactly as she had expected.
This story is told of Petite a young girl, a young woman who went through life suffering from the pains and heartaches of molestation, rape, teenage abuse, domestic violence, lies and failed relationships. The struggles, being a teenage mother, a single parent, and making ends meet.
Why keeping silent is not the answer.
How she overcame, remained strong, didn't let life wear her down. She was determined to make life better for not only herself but also her children.
Petite later went back to school and earned her Masters degree. She did not let her past struggles hinder her from moving forward.
Slightly bruised and a little broken Petite tells her story.
