Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
My name is Shumba Jula known as Shumba Kennard i was adopted from ethiopia when I was 9 years old. My adopted father started sexually abusing me, when i was 10 years old until I was 21yrs old. The reason I want to be part of this program is I feel that no one should ever have too go through, what I went through. I felt alone, confused, and embarrasse , but none of that belong to me. I just want my voice to be heard,and through my voice maybe I could help someone and let them know that they are not alone and that they can cry on my shoulder.

My Passions:
my boys and writting

My Challenges:

My Vision for the Future:
Be the best mom and wife that I can ever be.

My Areas of Expertise:
Im a good listener

I Welcome You

No one should have to go through the trials and experiences you've been through. It is wonderful that instad of using your experience in a negative way you have decided to impact others and make this issue avoidable, something that no one should experience.

In Pulsewire you will find women who work towards the same end: to impact, inspire and protectthe ones they love and to eradicate all forms of discrimination and abuse towards women and children.

Do contact me if you need a chat, a few laughs and even just whatever comes to mind.

Thank you all for warm welcom

I just want to take the time to thank you all for the friendly welcome. I hope I can have a good impact in each of you.

As I stated before I have been looking for a lawyer to help me fight for my kids againist my adopted family. But again i came back with nothing so instead of gaving up and putting my head to the flooring and dieing of depression I decided that Iam way to good of a person and a a strong lady. I sirvived a lot of things that life has throwing at me. Anyways I decided that if you ladies can assisst me on teaching me to act like a lawyler and fight back to whats mine Im all ears. I have been reading few books on it but I still cant understand it. Iam super samart and a fast learner if there any family lawylers out there to gave me some pointers Im all ear and I would Appricate very much. Instead of trying to explain myself to every lawyler about my situations and only to get turn down. I decided who else can represent me, than me. I know my situations best and I just need to know to put them in law way. I would appricate any adice that I might receive.

I have a blessed day
