I can't imagine hurting a child or an animal. Over twenty-five years ago another woman and I started a "Help" line for people who thought they might abuse, or had abused, or for kids who were fearful. It's still going. I applaud you. Strangely enough I'm finishing a novel that brushes up against your topic. I don't want to explain on a public site as it would spoil the tale once it gets out to the world. Maybe send me your email and we can carry the conversation further.
Thanks for the Welcome Jill. I am so glad to meet you. As I wrote in my introduction, I am in the middle of a rewrite for the new edition of my book. I will be researching new resources to be included and would be honored to include your book (which I will be definitely be reading soon)! One of the families in my book involves a horrific tale of child sexual abuse and explores how this kind of thing occurs within a family and the ways in which the system deals with it. I assume your book can be found on Amazon, if not, let me know how I can get it. Please lets keep in touch!
Thank you kindly for welcoming me here. I've been a bit shy these first few weeks but I definitely plan to try and find ways of being more active around here, so I shall keep poking around. Best of luck with the very important work you do, and thanks again.
