This week I started a new blog as well as a new journey. Here is the link:

 will remain available; and, I will most likely add a post intermittently. This website is extremely near and dear to my heart. It was mostly written after my daughter, Megan Mulczynski, and I were found and as I awaited trial for custodial interference for attempting to protect my daughter from abuse perpetrated by her father. It amazes me that I was able to focus and write my story as clearly as I did considering the deep, heavy load of grief at the time. The fear for my daughter’s welfare and for my uncertain future combined with PTSD made it a very potent and nearly overwhelming situation.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

                                                                                                                                        – Lao-tzu

It reminds me that love can give us strength to endure what is almost not possible to endure. Survivors of any type of abuse can relate to that statement. We survive the actual abuse. We deal with the aftermath. Too many survivors lead lives of self-destruction or deadened emotional lives that appear normal enough because they are unable to fully cope and to heal. I hope that all survivors can find inner strength to discover their own worth and value. Self-love is needed, even in tiny amounts such as the size of a mustard seed, to regain health, authenticity, and genuineness. I hope you each find the courage and strength to look inside oneself … to one day awaken and find the true love within and outside of yourself!
