Dee shares an extraordinary story about the terrible and hurtful thing that was done to her, the struggle she faced inside to share it, and how by facing that struggle, and telling her Mother what happened, she became the hero of her own story, went to the police, testified in court and she put a bad guy in jail.

Dee lived with her Mom and her Mom had a lot of friends. One day while her Mom went out to pick up dinner with her girlfriends, one of her guy friends came over to watch Dee. He was a friend of the family. While her Mother was out, he closed her bedroom door and sexually abused her. He did things to her that she did not want.
Sexual abuse and child abuse are very serious things particularly when it is child sexual abuse. It's a thing that can be hurtful, confusing, shameful and very scary. Dee did not know what to do. When she was in school she was very quiet and kept to herself. She told no on what he did to her. Molested, sexual abuse, physical abuse, assault, sexual assault, whatever it was called, all she knew is that she was hurt and extremely sad.
Then one day when she was driving with her mom the truth came out and she felt so relieved it did. She told someone she trusted, her Mom, what happened and they cried together. He abused her sexually. Then eventually, they went to the police and told them too. She ended up at a trial and was incredibly brave to stand up for herself and testify - tell the trust about what he did to her. As a result, he is in jail, a bad guy is in jail, he is a sex offender, a sexual predator. And Dee is on her way to getting healthy and happy again.
"my sexual abuse story" is not one that will define her. Any form of abuse is not okay, whether it is sexual, physical or emotional. No one should be a victim of abuse - no one should have an abuse story. Dee is a victim but one that bravely faced the man who hurt her. He is a sex offender who hurt kids. She is not sad anymore but what happened will never go away. This is one abuse story that has sope.

In this comment section i see 95% people with the criminal guy and 5% people with the poor girl. Oh Come on find your humanity. Because of you people (who are supporting the criminal guy) the world is becoming dangerous for kids ( boys and girls), teen agers and young adults. We should fight against it. An old phase from my country (India) we should pull out the poison plant before it gets the form of a poison tree.
