    I'm going to cry.

    The products the recovering women make are sold in Whole Foods.

    I didn't know Whole Foods was outside the U.S.; but, Thistle Farms, the organization that helps women, was invited by Whole Foods to speak globally how Thistle Farms heals generational abuse.

    So, this year, we'll be in 400+ Whole Foods stores, from approximately 80 to 400+ stores.

    "I was sexually molested at age 7 and had alcohol.

    At age 13 I ran away. Riding with truckers I sold my body.

    My husband sold me to a drug dealer.

    I lived 25 years like this.

    I was in prisons, halfway houses, addicted.

    I prayed to God to please let this stop.

    I owe God gratitude for where I am today."

    I met Magdalene who had a program for women who were incarcerated.

    "People used to call me all kind of names; but, its a blessing, now, to be called a lady;" tears almost formed in her eyes when she said that. She was grateful when she said the program gave her a key. (And that's big for someone who could not lock the world out.)
