Kim Del Valle Walker
I swore I’d never be like him, a drunken, violent, worthless piece of shit asshole!And I’m the one sitting in a jail cell? What the fuck is wrong with me? Maybe I should just kill myself . . .Do you ever look at your life or that of a loved one and wonder how in the hell it came to this? Are you too embarrassed to tell anyone what is really going on or to ask for help? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything you can think of, but nothing seems to change anyway? You are not alone!Help Over Handcuffs is the true story of Kim, a young mother who woke up in a jail cell with no recollection of how or why she was there or where her son was—again! Battered, bruised, and with only three dollars in her pocket, she was released from jail on her own recognizance, with nowhere to go, a family that threatened to kill her if they found her, and a possible prison sentence looming over her head. With her options seemingly limited, she found herself on an unintentional journey that she wasn’t so sure she wanted to take. Help Over Handcuffs takes you on this journey with Kim, from a life of trauma, hopelessness and despair to one of transformation and personal empowerment.
