And a happy Independence Day!

Well... I hope everyone had a wonderful (and safe) Independence Day, spent with those close to you!

I got to spend mine with a case: today was the anniversary of the day one of our kids was assualted by her ex stepfather. So a few of us spent the day making sure she knew we were there, and wouldn't let anything happen to her...

Some people don't understand our mission: we're not vigilantes, hunting down predators. We're not security guards, following our kids around. We're lay therapists, helping our kids learn to not be afraid, to stand up for themselves in this world we live in. Today, we took another step in that direction with this girl...

But good gawds: can one of these PLEASE not invlolve being at someone's home for over 12 hours straight?
