I was born in Mexico, on July 7th, the second of what would eventually be eight siblings born to Alfonso and Marcela Cervantes. My family moved to the United States in 1974 and I have lived in California for most of my life since then. I became a proud US citizen as a teenager.
Today, I am "A Woman Resurrected", fully recovered from my terrifying past. I have been able to move on and forgive all those people that hurt me. My past does not make me less of a woman; it makes me a better woman, a stronger woman. My 2006 escape and rescue was a rebirth for me. I was able to renew my life and reunite with my four beautiful daughters to look forward to better tomorrows.
My joy is spending time with my family, supporting women and children's charities, and living in the moment.
I owe it all to The Lord; he has given me so much peace and love in my heart.
