Introducing myself and my journal: Maria's Voice

About Me:
I am an Aleut, mother of 4 daughters and really want to make the world a better place for my daughters. I have beautiful dreams and work hard to make them come true. I am shy in person but can write with more meaning.

My Passions:
My 4 daughters, Nature, Woman, Writing, Computer Games

My Challenges:
Just ended an abusive marriage and standing on my own and giving my daughters their confidence back. We homeschool and love it.

My Vision for the Future:
Making a difference little by little and bringing a smile to someones face

My Areas of Expertise:
Not an expert but love computers, writing, homeschooling my daughters, and doing my part to help the world become better.

Welcome, Maria. It's

Welcome, Maria. It's wonderful to meet you here on PulseWire.

I'd like to congratulate you on getting out of your abusive relationship, and recommend that you get in touch with Tabby (, who is from Kenya and who has also recently left her husband because of abuse. Perhaps you two can provide support for each other and offer words of encouragement and inspiration.

I look forward to getting to know you as you discover PulseWire!

All the best to you and your daughters,

Hej Maria

You are a woman of substance

The biggest inheritance you can give to your daughters is finding a safer place for them and making sure their mother is well and sound. I applaud you for making that bold step to freedom and wellbeing

coming from an abusive home where my mother was no equal partner to her husband i understand well what imagery stays in in the mind of a child. But I am happy for you that You are out of that situation.and you have put focus in helping the girls heal too

You are a blessing
