Let’s face it, child abuse is a topic that many people would rather not talk about. Hearing the stories of children abused by those meant to protect them is not only horrible but will make a person lose faith in humanity, if not already. Child abuse is a silent growing epidemic in the United States. “It takes a village to raise a child” and it should take that same “village” to report suspected child abuse. Child protection is everyone’s business. Dr. John DeGarmo, an international expert on foster care, boldly writes about his personal experience as a foster care parent and how it is critically important that as a nation, we must not turn away from stories of child abuse, but help end it.
