".....I am grateful to say that my life continues to get better. I have good friends and deep relationships. I like who I am. I have found that sharing my past in this way has helped heal my heart, and I hope it will help others to heal theirs and remember never to give up, no matter how dire the situation may appear. I didn't, and I am the better for it. When people ask me how I managed to outlast everything in my life, I tell them it was due to my determination and the grace of God. I tell them, pray with an open heart and God will help you, just as he did me. True, I will always be that poor girl from Rwanda. But I will also always be that strong woman who survived."
