I stayed at St. Anne's in the early 70's. I was from an abusive home, 15 years old, alone and pregnant. St. Anne's was a safe harbor where I was treated with respect and compassion. St Anne's enabled me to continue my schooling uninterrupted and I ended up graduatiing BEFORE my class. I'm so grateful for St. Anne's and the individuals that dedicated their time and energy to helping me and steering me in the right direction. My experience was also the very first time another adult explained to me that my abusive father's actions weren't my fault and that I could stop the cycle by learning to make different choices. Saying thank you would never be enough but know that not only did I raise my son successfully but I brought 5 other children into the world and adopted another. I've been married for 33 years, was a stay at home mom, and later worked outside the home, when my children were old enough to enjoy the time apart from me. I've spent a lifetime learning how to make healthier choices than my parents did. I am one of your success stories and remain extremely grateful for the part St. Anne's played in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
