The radiant Reba Wong with her daughter Mayah (6) and son Jesse (3). Reba was able to have healthy pregnancies and uncomplicated vaginal deliveries with each of her children. She nursed Mayah for about two years and had hoped to do the same with Jesse. Unfortunately, due to custody arrangements, Reba had to wean him, much sooner than she had hoped. While she's always felt like a strong and independent woman, Reba lost herself in an incredibly abusive marriage. It took her nearly 7 years to see what exactly what was happening and when she did she knew she needed to get out and protect herself and her children. Reba was told that she was fat and unattractive. Her husband refused to touch her while financially controlled and isolated her. He was physical and unfaithful and in the process, Reba's worth and esteem were greatly diminished. Reba hadn't worked for many years but has now established a life for herself and her children. While it's been a frightening journey with many unknowns, she's starting to feel beautiful and capable and strong once again. Her health and her children's happiness are her world and while she can't see the big picture just yet, she says the puzzle pieces are fitting together and knows that someday it will be complete.
