Christine McLean with the 4th grade teacher who helped her cope with her difficult life at home.

When Christine McLean left home as a teenager to escape her abusive father she didn’t think she’d ever look back. The domestic violence she experienced as a child left her with trauma, anxiety, an eating disorder, and a dangerous relationship with alcohol which plagued her for years. Now sober and with a family of her own, Christine reflects on the aftermath of childhood pain, the decision she made to allow her father back into her life, and how she found it possible to still deeply love the person who hurt her the most.
