The ABC House has given me the ability to dream. Just being in this situation I was I felt that so much was taken away from me. I simply didn’t dream back then. I didn’t know where my life was going to go and I really didn’t care back then.
From a Parent:
The range of emotions one goes through as a father realizing that somebody that you trusted traumatized your child, was mean to them, did something horrible to them… of course there’s anger, there’s shock, there’s disbelief, there’s guilt….
From a Partner:
Trying to coordinate the care for an abused child that needs to continue on as well as to get them justice takes a lot of people, a lot of coordination. That’s something we just cannot do in an ER by ourselves. There will be many more children who fall through the cracks without the ABC House.
