Hey everyone, I just joined this group... I don't get on this site very often but this subject is one I hold very near and dear to my heart and looked for a group that dealt with this issue. I truly feel that the subject of child abuse has been neglected and needs to be put at the forefront of this country as it is the cause of many of the problems of this world today. lol I sound so dramatic...lol I am being serious though and I hope that I can reach out and support those of you who are champions of this terrible crime and those that may be just beginning to see the ugly head of what its like to be a Mom of a child that has been abused. It is devastating to say the least but being strong for that child and being the voice for him/her so they can be heard is so important. Its late and past my bedtime...lol...I will end this for now....lol ;o) I pray that you all are doing well and your children are safe from harm!
