Hello all. I am a post-menopausal 55-year-old mother of eight, grandmother of 18 and a writer on the topic of child abuse. I also write poetry. I have four web sites that I try to keep up with now that the children are all grown and on their own!
I live in the country on a dirt road, away from people. Although I am out going on here, I am rather shy in person. I find poetry gives me a way to share my feelings and experiences, and helps me heal.
As a child abuse survivor, it has taken me over 30 years to find the courage to speak out against child abuse. In 1999 I began writing aarticles on topics related to child abuse and have met thousands of survivors in every part of the world. One thing I find we all have in common, is a desire to reach out to other survivors and let them know they are not alone.
I belong to so many differnt sites that I may not be able to visit here a lot, but I'll try to check in once a week to keep up.
I look forward to meeting other writers and boomers who are looking for a friend in Ohio.
