Follow up : Hope

From an out of state woman who wants out of the sex industry:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! I, not only have been contacted by your friend, but had lunch with her today. It was such a great relief. I can't explain why I felt so trapped, all I know is she broke that feeling. I feel I made my first real friend here, not including my fiance. We discussed step by step action that I can take to change that are not overwhelming and drastic but baby steps. I feel really confident. She made me understand I can't just stop dancing tonight and how it is ok but how to ween off and know that I can. I am not a bad person, I have just made bad decisions. It's time! I'm ready! Now I ask GOD, " NOW WHAT?? "

This email brings me joy. Knowing this loved woman is seeing her worth, value and ability to move forward in the direction she desires is amazing. In her first email she seemed so hopeless and trapped ("I have a co-dependency problem, depression, A.D.D., dyslexia, and I'm terrified."). But, that is not the end of her story. She is loved and then some by God and people near her as well as far away.

I look forward to journeying with her, seeing her progress and supporting her.

Many more thoughts but I will stop there for now.
