My Friend's Story of Healing

by Sue
(Houston, Texas, United States)

Reading all of these stories makes me cry. How to get rid of child abuse when you are being abused? Talk to a counselor and/or call the police. I know it would be hard. My friend, she was abused (like a year ago) and she came to talk to me. And one day, I told her to come to my house, and she said no because her father would get mad. But I said it was O.K. and she said fine.

When she came over, I asked my mom if I could go over to my friend's house with the police. My mom said O.K. So we were in a police car driving to her house, and when we went in, her father was surprised. He was arrested, and my friend went to go live with her real mother.

Please, if you are being abused, call the police or talk to a friend. And if you can't, I don't know what to say. This story was real. I am only 12. I was 11 when my friend was abused. Yeah I know, you don't really take advice from children. But you know, I really care and I want to stop this. My mom said good idea, but then she said that not all the abusers will stop.
