The deep wounds and scars she carried as a child and into adulthood would not allow her to embrace herself nor her culture. In turn, she found herself in the safe haven of her husbands West Indian culture, where she thought she could plant her roots and forget about her past. As self-rejection proliferated, many facts of her individuality began to change. Not only was she unable to relate to her Hispanic lifestyle, but she had purposefully intended to emancipate herself from her people, culture, and anything that would be a reminder of who she really was. Even as a Christian, this camouflaging way of life went undetected for many years, and although she was more than happy to give up her roots, she never imagined that the self-inflicting death she imposed upon herself would be to her own breakdown. God would now have her undivided attention with a truth that would rock her world. Twenty years later, she would learn that her destiny was hidden in her history.
