You possess the special gifts to thrive beyond CDV, as others did

Just because you experienced CDV doesn't mean you can't become manager of the New York Yankees, a superstar recording artist, or even President of the United States. Joe Torre, Christina Aguilera, and President Bill Clinton grew up living with domestic violence and went on to lead very successful lives. You can too.
