Patrick and Michelle were in denial of the lifestyle they were leaving for their children. Addictions and emotional voids weakened their relationship.
Michelle’s spirit was barely breathing. She felt that in order to break years of the same cycle, she needed to leave her marriage.
This is what it took for Michelle and Patrick to begin working through their personal issues, talking instead of running from those difficult subjects. Both of them lived separate lives, but every day Patrick wrote love letters to his wife.
Was almost after a year, Michelle proposed to Patrick, and that following summer they got married again.
Michelle and Patrick are proof that life may not be easy, but when you commit to working through those challenges, magic happens. They have managed to change the legacy not only for themselves, but for their entire family.
