Do you know someone who is abused or are you abused?
Signs of abuse:
- Unexplained bruises
- Double talk
The last one, double talk, needs explanation. I asked a woman whom I was good friends with if I could stop by her house and drop off a copy of a book she wanted. She began to stammer and her eyes shifted around. She said, she was busy, and then, started to explain. I told her not to worry. At work, we were best of friends, but she avoided any contact with her home life.
I didn't think much of it at the time, but about a month later, her husband nearly beat her to death sending her headlong into the corner of their brick home. Her two teenage boys intervened, and saved her, but she has never been the same, and neither have her sweet boys. They both became angry and one has done time in jails for drugs.
I recently reported an incident of suspected abuse on a Christian website of a teen. He told my daughter of his abusive father, and asked that she not tell anyone. She told me, and I reported it to the site.
Please help stop abuse. There is help for you. If you need help, email me and I'll help you anyway I can. As you may know, my daughter was adopted and was horribly abused. It seems to be my mission in life, and I'm not afraid to get involved, so please ask if you need help or just need to talk.
