The Story of Hope

For Six years that’s how it would stay.

But that’s not the story of me….


Start school her name changed for the first time.

A young child, depressed and abused for years. Christina M. D…

For 26 years she was punished but did no crime.

No that’s not the story of me….


Marriage changed her name once again.

Abuse and misuse found her more.  Christina M. G…

During those ten years the pain never seemed to end.

That could not be the story of me….


I was born to a new woman on the fifth of May 2010

The Day life slowly drifted away from Christina G…

On July 12,2012 I will be formally Christened

Hope M. S… stronger and more courageous than She

 Yeah Hope that’s me!


Author's Notes:
My Divorce Court Date is July 12, 2012 at which time I will legally change my Name to Hope. M. S...

On May 5th 2010 I took a massive OD of medication to escape my marriage and wasn't expected to make it.  it was the first time I told people about my soon to be ex's treatment of me.

My life is far from perfect or the way I expected it to be.  But I am free, happy, and grateful every day for giving the gift of having a second chance at life.

Thank you my friends for supporting more over the years.

I love the name Hope; it's perfect for you -- but no matter what your name is, you are perfect!  --David

It is amazing what we can do when we set our minds to it.  Endurance, perseverance, fortitude.  Each step a rung on the ladder of life. Hopeful and wise.  I enjoyed this very much and appreciate your candor and bravery.  ~Pamela

You are brave -- courageous and if you can and concentrate all your thought -- my strength and goodwill such as it is -- rushes to be with you -- a most profound and emotive write --

 That is a painful chronicle of abuse and suffering, but a wonderful ending:-)

Some counsel  from Old Bill:-

        Cease to lament for that thou canst not help,
And study help for that which thou lament'st.
Time is the nurse and breeder of all good.Hope is a lover's staff; walk hence with that
And manage it against despairing thoughts.

                     Two Gentlemen of Verona
