INTRO: changingpatterns

Tracey takes a breather while waiting for her daughter Johnna to tire before putting her to bed.  Tracey has tried most of her life to break the  the cycle of abuse in her family. Beginning at a young age, her mother would allow her boyfriends to molest her.  She was frequently beaten and at times locked in a storage freezer.  Tracey continues to work to regain custody of her other two other children, whom were removed from her home by the New York State child protective services.
