In a homeschooling house full of 7 kids & 3 guniea pigs....there is never a dull moment! A lot of people show genuine concern for us and want to know how we are doing, as the road we've left behind was not a pleasant one. So, here I am, to tell some of our stories...share some of our days...and open up a part of our world to you! Come join us on our journey so you won't miss the moments that take our breath away!

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.
I made this video to spread awareness about sexual abuse.
To show that child abusers do not look a certain way. To show that they are not a certain "type" of person. To show that abusers look and act just like everyone else. To show you that we were a "normal" family, just like yours and to make people understand that it can happen in you house, the way it happened in ours.
Abusers don't live off to themselves on their own private island...they are among us. They are our neighbors, teachers, co-workers. They are fathers, husbands, brothers, uncles, and friends and lets not forget, they can be mothers, wives, sisters, aunts, and friends too. There is no kind of community where child sexual abuse doesn't happen, it happens everywhere and it has happened to you or someone you know! It happened in our house and it can happen in yours!
I made this video to allow you a peek into our past, to show you what our "secret" looked like. It is our passion to spread awareness...whether it be through public speaking or social media...this is just the beginning of great things yet to come.
