Personal Stories

Within each victim of child sexual abuse there lies a story. It is a story that has severely impacted who we are today. We are family, friends, associates, employees, and our stories bring hope to those who are at every stage of their journey of recovery. So many of us have never told our story because we thought no one would believe us. Maybe we thought that it was our own fault that these vile events happened to us and that there isn't any point in reliving them. It is BECAUSE of these thoughts that we need to break the silence and share our experiences. From each other we will draw inspiration and courage and from that courage we will gain a voice that will be heard by other victims to inspire them on their journey to recovery. Sharing your story will not only help others; it will help you! . To read the entire story, simply click on its title
