You have made a young woman's dream come true. Laura is so excited to begin classes at her local community college for the winter term! Laura is sad that she had to leave her family but she is developing a new support network and feels safe.
Here is a note from Laura: "There was a time when I did not want to live. I couldn't take the abuse of my parents, and I couldn't leave. I thought my only way out was to kill myself. Now, my world has completely changed. I have a new life and I am determined to be successful. Thank you for caring and giving me hope again."
