I am so touched by the experiences I've read here and I've experienced much myself. There is something that stands out for me and it is the need for a federal statute on standards of care for identified victims of abuse even if one parent is the only witness. I feel that there is power in numbers and we can eventually make our voices known and that of our children. It is time that society face the horrors that happens in the home and not keep portraying the stranger in the bushes as the one that needs to be feared. I hope once I am healed and many of us here, we can begin to change the system in ways that are empowering and protective of our children. I hope you can use your anger and I can do the same to make really enduring changes on a systemic level.
