Escaping Bohemia

Trigger Warning: Sophia shares some of the abuse she encountered as a child. Writing it out has been a form of healing and not allowing it to control her any longer.

Not only did Sophia overcome the darkness in her childhood but she also shared her story in the hope of helping others. This is a remarkable accomplishment due to her inability to read or write until she was well into her 20s. This story shows us the resilience of a child which was equaled to a brave warrior. If a child can break the evil cycle of abuse, neglect and pain then there is nothing to stop all of us adorning our warrior suits and facing the battle ahead. Escaping Bohemia is so much more than a memoir, it is a message of hope for all.

Knowing that you have a choice, as a child, is such a powerful tool but it is a tool that so many children do not tap into. Together we can show children that they do in fact hold that power!

As an adult too often we hold onto the guilt and shame of a childhood that we had little control over. Together we can shed the baggage that is carried so unnecessarily!

Allowing others and the past is a trait that stops us from daring to dream. Together we can dare to dream, grab our dreams and in doing so make changes not only for ourselves but for our families and the community at large!

Escaping Bohemia is the true story of a young vulnerable child who overcame all that was presented to her during a childhood filled with abuse and neglect. Her own mother was tormented by addiction and pain, spending several spells in prison. Never finding the healing or help that she needed.

“Our home was always full of colorful characters and days filled with uncertainty. I emerged as one of two broken children-and we have a brother that we never knew existed until a few years ago.”

Escaping Bohemia is a haunting narrative of the deeply troubling account of a child failed by family, systems and society. Though the real message is “That we can overcome the obstacles in front of us.”
