When a molestation happens in a family it may not be talked about...but it is never forgotten. And you would be surprised, maybe even shocked at the survivor's successes in life in spite of this heinous crime perpetrated on them. They are truly survivors.
One in three girls are molested before the age of 18 and one in six boys. Now that my book is published I meet men and women who share that they were molested in childhood but they never told anyone including their mother...What do you say? Thank them for telling you. And let them know it was not their fault.
Can you imagine the size of the gathering of wounded souls- reported and unreported cases- around the town clock in our community?
Every night on the news when there are new sexual crime reports sited it bothers the survivors and friends of the survivors.
Let us pray, Please God... help us make it STOP.
The Survivor's Healing Center can help you and there

I am sorry that it happened.
