A WOMAN has revealed that she left her partner with his child after suffering from his abuse for seven years.
Heather, from the US, took to social media to share her story and clear up any rumours of her being a narcissist for taking his daughter with her when she left.
Now 32, Heather has eight children in her blended family with her current partner, Justin.
She revealed she first met her ex when she was just 19, who had a daughter from a previous relationship.
From the moment they met, Heather and her now oldest daughter bonded – despite saying she never wanted children as a teenager.
But her world was flipped upside down when she met Jordyn and even had two more children while struggling in an abusive relationship.
