This Site: A Place to Connect with Other Child Abuse Survivors

I was doing research on the effects of child abuse and stumbled on your site, Darlene. I find your site is very well organized, and helps give those of us who were abused the chance to connect with others who were too.


It's a place where we can share our sad stories, how we overcame our difficulties, and know we are not alone.

Thank you for dedicating yourself to your website and the subject of abuse.

It's very helpful to me, and others, by the sounds of it.

Thank YOU, Paul...

I'm delighted that you find my site and the stories on it helpful, Paul. The "positives" you've found on this site are the primary reasons I created it; and I'm always appreciative when my visitors take the time to write me with words of thanks and encouragement. I thank YOU for taking that time.
