I have questions. Questions I haven’t been able to find exact answers to so I’m gonna reach out to the “blog world” and see if I can get some thoughts on these. Do adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse feel physical paid differently than others? Continue reading “Questions”
Things have been very quiet in my CASA case. Frankie is doing well, growing stronger and getting bigger. He’s starting cutting teeth so he’s chewing on everything. I visited with the foster dad today. They are meeting with the adoption attorney early next week. Hoping to have the adoption complete before the scheduled hearing next month.

But honestly I didn’t think my posts were that dark. I’ve actually been holding back. I felt like my posts were just very matter of fact without much feelings. I can only imagine what people would think if I were to paint a better picture of how things really were.
Anyway with that being said, I’ve been thinking about writing more and more seems like that is all I’ve been doing……thinking! Continue reading “Stats on Child Abuse”
