I was sexually abused by my Stepfather from the age of 7-17 years old. Today at the age of 54 I can still remember a lot of this abuse. It doesn’t just go away but I have gone on with my life to be a sexual abuse prevention advocate.
For the past 15 years I have spoken my story to audiences including Correctional facility, staff and inmates, Police Academy for our future police officers, nurses, child care providers, survivors, really to all that I can.
My husband and I just released our book of my story that took over 5 years to write. Much detail is included on my abuse, my Advocacy, and helping to extend the SOL for me to go forward for a 4 day jury trial at Federal Court in Springfield MA. Included in book are some of the transcripts. After the trial, I detail going forward to the life I live now, for myself.
