Wesley’s Story – How Abuse Impacted My Health

Categories: Child Sexual Abuse Survivors, Guest Blog, Home, Survivor Stories

If you’ve taken Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children® training, Wesley may seem familiar to you.

He’s a featured survivor in Stewards of Children® and is committed to preventing child sexual abuse and protecting children. This April, he’s teamed up with Darkness to Light again to share more about how sexual abuse impacted his life, both as a child when the abuse occurred and as an adult to this day.

Over the next three weeks, we’ll share accounts of the health, social, and family impacts Wesley endured in the wake of abuse. His story shows us that abuse can happen in any family, and that survivors can find hope and healing through their journey to recovery.

Next week: the impact abuse had on his family.
