“I believe in miracles; my own life being the proof. I have walked out of the prisons of an eating disorder and an abusive marriage, and celebrate on a daily basis my new empowered reality as well as the lives of my adult children’s. I’m peacefully divorced from my ex-husband and now thriving in a same-sex marriage, earning my living doing what I love in respectful collaboration with people I admire. A life I didn’t even dare to dream of.”
