A Transitions Mother

Motherhood is defined by selfless and unconditional love. To be a mother is one of the greatest gifts a woman can experience but also one of the most challenging. Maly, knows this firsthand. Her story was first shared through Abolition International's TO BE FREE film last year.  All Maly knew before her rehabilitation was violence and neglect. She says she never had the chance to experience an abundance of love and care from her family. But for her son, Maly is choosing to give him a different life. At 22 weeks, Maly’s boy is growing quickly and showing her what it means to love and to be loved in the most innate and amazing way.


    Maly and her husband have been slowly building a life together. She teaches yoga at a local studio and they’re both working hard to support and provide for their new son. They are well aware of the sacrifice and the undivided attention a child requires.Maly wants so much more for her son than what she was given when she was young. She dreams of a great education for him and wants to set him up for a life of opportunity. Amidst the busy schedules, Maly and her husband are completely enamored with their son. They enjoy coming home after a long day and spending time together as a family. It’s the tiny moments that are continuing to define and create a beautiful life that is completely their own.

   Maly is a woman who has overcome unspeakable adversity. She is strong. She is beautiful. She is loved. And she loves hard. She is a mother. What a blessing she is to the world and to her son.
