ReMoved: The Life of an Abused Child.

As part of my Issues Posts, I wanted to share this moving story about child abuse. You can see through Zoe’s eyes, the torment and anguish a child goes through when they live in a home where they are abused. They carry this pain around with them for years, and many children like Zoe and Lexie are more afraid to lose the things that are important to them, than they are of the abuse itself. Like Zoe, my character Lexie learned to put up walls to keep the rug from slipping out from under her.  But what she learned is that secrets are destructive and carrying your past around—letting it define you, letting it shape your future… That’s even more destructive than the secrets we keep to protect ourselves.
