We were on vacation to Manali, when my ex claimed that he had another emergency business meeting in Mumbai. He abandoned our son and me midway into our holiday. Our flight was scheduled the next day, anyways. I ignored the sinking sensation in my stomach the entire day. We returned to Mumbai the next day […]
After joining an all-women’s group of more than 10000 women on Facebook, I noticed the increasing trend of anonymous posts by women facing domestic abuse, but unable to raise their voices due to lack of support from their parents and financial dependence on their husbands! These women only need a ray of hope, soothing words […]

After the sudden dismissal of my loving husband, life for me and kids was like paused... we lost all the fun, laughter’s and family times we used to have together as a family … upon forced invitation I used to attend some gatherings and found that I don’t have anything common to talk nor anyone in this world had time to know what was happening in mine and kids life ... One fortunate day got to know about this Family and a it happened that I and kids were part of an event and I got to meet most wonderful, patient, and loving people of this family … all were just like me and going through lives challenges alone and still each one was so persistent enough to listen to family members issues and give support n encourage them as much as possible.. . I had a strong feeling that there is a family which cares for me and kids too ... at times when I felt low and to my surprise I would get a message from the admin or by any members of this family, just ask how I am and if I needed any help .. Its gods greatest blessings that I n my kids are part of this family. Thanks to Admin for going that extra mile to be there for all the family members … god bless and keep this going
I'm a new member. And while I have barely been part of this group for a couple of weeks, I already feel so warmly included. And even though I have not as yet shared any of my story with the group, there has been no pressure to do so. It's comforting for a change to know that others are going through what I have and am going through. More importantly, through the various conversations and especially these testimonials I realise that I'm not the only one getting through each day trying to be strong and keep it all together. Something many others won't understand. And the amazing thing is there is so much support to help you get through each day. This group to me seems to be one where strangers come together to become more than just friends.....a family by choice.
