Li Mei's Story
Li Mei came to the YW when she was six months pregnant with her daughter, Spring. Fearful for herself and her unborn child, she left her physically abusive husband. Speaking almost no English, she sought refuge with distant relatives in Huntsville. They brought her to the YW and promised they would be back for her in one month. That was more than a decade ago in 1997.
