My beautiful daughter (Trigger Warning)

Today is my daughters 2nd birthday and for me this is a really significant day. I was raped by my boyfriend at the time and after the abuse I suffered from my father, my boyfriend doing this put me in an even worse state. My daughters birth was a changing point in my life. She was suddenly my main focus. I always say that she is the sole reason I'm still here today. She has helped me see that beautiful things can come from horrible situations.
