Jolie, Liz, Erika and I traveled to Aiken South Carolina yesterday to hear Marilyn Van DeBur, former Miss America and incest survivor, speak at a luncheon in support of The Child Advocacy Center of Aiken County.
Marilyn is a featured survivor in D2L’s Stewards of Children training video so we feel like we already know her. But, it was such a privilege to hear her speak in person and an honor to meet her. It was an opportunity to thank her for being such a powerful voice for survivors everywhere and an important advocate for children and the prevention of sexual abuse. She is truly an inspiration.

As a “Stewards of Children” facilitator, I am always moved by Marilyn’s hearrtfelt testimony. All who attend my trainings comment about “the beauty queen” As a personal note, thank you, Marilyn, for the fine work you did on behalf of “Stewards” and I salute you in your committment to help other survivors.
I happened to stumble upon your website. I compliment you. It is a wonderful site, easy to read, and chock full of good information.
I am an adult survivor of sexual abuse and at the age of 73 was able to tell my story. I have now created a site to help survivors of abuse. thisnewdawn.com
Would one your people in your organization like to be a guest blogger on my site?
