9:10 am
story, what you went through and share how you were able to get out i don't have your situation. >> i started dating an american soldier in germany. and he asked me to basically fall in love and come to the united states of america with him. and i came. and he basically took me out of my environment, my friends, my family, my support group. and he took advantage of that situation and abused me mentally and physically. and one day i had enough and i went to the bank and took basically the first step to leave that situation. and i wanted to get all my money so i can leave and found out that he and his mother actually emptied it. so i had nothing. i called the police officer because i was really scared to go home to get my belongings. and he stated at the front door that i wasn't living there. and he took all my belongings,
9:11 am
including my passport. >> how did you get the strength to leave that situation? >> i guess there's a little click inside that just says enough is enough. and you can't do this anymore. and you didn't come here to be abused. you came here for love. and you wanted to start a family. and you just have to think what is good for you. if this is not good for you, leave. if this makes you feel pain and hurt, love shouldn't hurt. so it was just a click. you just have to do it. and there was this one man that see me in distress in front of the bank crying that actually gave me his wife's telephone number and said call her. she's going to help you. and she helped me. she worked for a nonprofit organization. she helped me. she got me to the abuse persons program. they helped me get food, shelter and everything.
9:12 am
