Bethany contacted Pathways via email earlier this year. She was desperate to come home to the US with her daughter Estia. Bethany was exhausted from years of verbal and emotional abuse from her husband. He was never pysically abusive but the insults, demeaning, invalidation of her as a wife, a mother and a woman had eroded away any sense of self-worth.
Our crisis email advocate was able to provide Bethany with emotional support, helping her understand that her husband's treatment of her was not her fault and did not reflect who she was as a person
Slowly Bethany gained confidence, purchased airline tickets and flew home with Estia.
So many times victims just need to be heard, to be validated of their worth, before they can make the decisions necessary to remove themselves from abuse.
Your support of this project made this possible for Bethany and her daughter Estia. And for so many other victims.
Thank you for your generous heart. The Pathways Team
