Today was spent working on the website where I added a guest book and a forum. It is my hope that people will use the message boards to talk about their own experience; how it affected them, and how they worked towards recovery. I know there are millions of people out there who have never spoken about their abuse, either out of shame or fear. Hopefully they will find it easier to write about it, rather than having to say the actual words. For many, this may be their first step towards dealing with their pain.
I have the privilege of being able to shape the minds and lives of children who are battling disabilities. It can be very trying at times, but more often than not it is very rewarding. As a mother of a child with a disability, I know the struggles that they go through on a daily basis. This allows me to have a little more compassion for the people that I work with.
