Date: July 11, 2019

Sexually abused child 1When we discover that the child we are adopting or caring for permanently has been sexually abused, all sorts of questions, thoughts and feelings come into our minds: how hurt is my little girl/boy? Does she/he carry that wound? Will she/he go on to abuse other children? And how can I cope with what has happened to her/him? Another question may be “am I alone?” This workshop provides a space to meet with others in a similar situation, share, and, perhaps find some answers to some of our questions.
