I had to weigh sharing my family's secret against the opportunity to inspire other victims. After spending years trying to forget what had happened we had lost ourselves in the secretcy. The opportunity to be able to open up and talk about the experience was liberating, and has encouraged me to continue spreading the word about raising awareness.
Now we are preparing for more public exposure as we await a news article that should be coming out next week. I was fortunate enough to have been interviewed about my book writing and how I hope to inspire other victims to break the silence about their own abuse. As of right now it looks like the article may run on Sunday or Monday, but I will expand more on it when I have the final details.
I would like to thank everybody who has believed in and supported me throughout this journey. Without you I may not have had the courage to continue. My life is heading in a whole new direction and I feel that a new purpose awaits me. I look forward to meeting other survivors at the event next weekend and then I plan to come home and write my final chapter of the book. You will be the insipiration for the ending of my story!
