Doraina aka Miracle

I used to always hear IF YOU KNEW BETTER YOU’D DO BETTER well I know better and I am doing better. I am choosing to share my pain and mistakes as proof that there is life after death, hope after dope and freedom after bondage. I am living proof that you can go from victim to victorious. You can move beyond tragedy and trauma to become a warrior of Triumph You can overcome suffering in silence to boldly unapologetically speaking when you want to.

I am choosing not to be silent anymore. I have accepted the fact all I went through was not to simply and quietly keep it to myself but to openly share with others that God is still in the miracle working business. In this book are mini testamonies of how I made it through tumultuous abusive relationships, generational domestic violence, prostitution, alcohaliosm, suicidal thoughts and several suicide attempts.
However the God I know, love and serve WOULDN’T LET ME DIE.The saying I don’t look like what I’ve been through is not just a cliche’ to me. I am a miracle and I refuse to put a cap on my blessings.
AKA MIRACLE is who I am and this is my book of testimonies
