"I just couldn't believe it. My husband was the picture of the American Dream. He was a successful Latino attorney, had a beautiful house, and also nearly divorced me so he could spend more time with his mistress -- cocaine. I felt so betrayed at first.

Things are not perfect now, but I understand what is going on a little better, and that is a blessing."
