Sex Abuse is a Crime to your sister, daughter, mother, grandmother, niece, cousin, best friend, wife....
Sex abuse can be stopped when understood.
I can't tell you how many times I have women approach me and thank me for the cause. They share their support followed by how they would like to offer their time.
There are so many different situations and variables of abuse. Abuse is abuse no matter the level of experience. No matter the occurrence, even if it was one time it is abuse. No matter who the person was or how close a confidant he/she may be, it is abuse. Sexual abuse is the actual act of inappropriate display of touch, expression and exploitation to a minor. A manipulated relationship to entertain various levels of sex abuse. If it feels inappropriate, it is.
Some women do not understand the levels of their abuse until their early 20's and many more will not process their abuse until their late adult years. Leaving them with no closure, no help and a number of relationship, mental health, physical health issues. There is still hope for every victim who wishes to seek a new enlightening path along side of 7 Graces. With your help they will receive the appropriate support and services. Thank you in advance
The Grooming process is a huge part of the sexual abuse experience.
You can't have one without the other, grooming and sex abuse. Being "GROOMED" (Grooming: is an emotional manipulated relationship, with a goal to build trust in a predator with sexual intentions to harm a minor, usually a young child)
