NO parents…ZERO…have a child with the intent of hurting them emotionally or physically. Yet, it is way more common than most people know and believe. Rich, poor, black, white…it’s all the same…Parents usually pass on what they know. If they knew pain and sadness…there is a good chance that you are feeling that today. If that is why you are here…YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
This is where it gets very personal for me. My sweet adopted granddaughter took the test while riding in the car for 8 hours with me. She looked over at me and quietly said…”I am a 7 Papa T.” THAT is a big number! And her next words to me were…”But now I am a ZERO…because your family saved me!” That’s why there is HOPE…you are just ONE person away from working toward being a NoACEs.CLUB success story. We are confident that there is someone that cares about you nearby. It might be someone at your school or another family member. Just taking the first step and telling your story is a HUGE moment…THAT is when you are out of the SHADOW!
We will be working to develop some links to places where you will feel safe…like Boys & Girls Clubs. And as you start to heal…come back and tell us about it so we can share your success with others. Because, that is what this is all about…We are all FAMILY!
