After something like this happens to you, there’s just so many lies about yourself that you believe and through going to ABC House… some of those lies that I believed about myself were broken off, just like that. It was so awesome to have those lies broken off and begin to believe in myself again.
From a Parent:
After the exams and the interviews, I remember going into a room with the detectives, the doctor and the social worker and crying and sitting there talking to them. It’s one of those moments I have forever in my brain that I hung onto when things were bad. And they said, “We’ve seen a lot of kids come through here unfortunately but we all believe this is going to have a good outcome, that he’s going to get past this someday.”
From a Partner:
I truly believe that had we not had the ABC House, we would not have discovered this child was sexually abused.
