Thank you for visiting What Lies in the Shadows. This site focuses on prevention and healing of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, plus ritual abuse and trafficking. Child abuse is not society’s problem or the government’s problem. It is your problem and my problem.
There is no way to put a price on how much abuse costs the child who is abused, but according to Child Help (Childhelp.org), the cost to the American taxpayer in 2008 was 124 billion dollars. Did that get your attention? I hate to narrow it down to dollars and cents, but that seems to be the language Americans as a whole understand. Am I preaching to the choir? I probably am, because if you didn’t care about abused children, you would be surfing another website.
Thank you for caring. I hope we can partner together to make a difference. If you are a survivor, you can tell your story here. You are not alone. If you work with abused children or adults abused as children, we want to bless you. If you have found techniques that help a survivor, please pass them along and I will pass along things I have learned in my counselor’s chair. I don’t want this to be just another blog. I want it to be a blog that touches aching hearts.
