“FACS identified that domestic violence was an issue, so I had to find somewhere to go that could help me face the domestic violence I experienced, learn how to keep my children safe and what the cycle of abuse was. I had to be willing to look for help and approach services."
“I left domestic violence, but domestic violence hasn’t left me. It’s been 10 years. The reason my son is in care is because of domestic violence. Even today, I’m still always on guard. I cannot control my ex’s behaviour, but I can control how I will respond.”
