Lisa is a successful business professional, and she shares her story with us. She traveled frequently for work, and employed a babysitter who, in essence, became part of the family. The babysitter eventually got into a serious relationship, and her boyfriend was also welcomed in to Lisa's home. But eventually, his behavior crossed a line.
Lisa makes several important points in this interview. Abuse in any form can be extremely traumatic for a child, and it happens everywhere - regardless of a family's socioeconomic status. And when a child survives abuse, the specially trained counselors at Child Advocacy Centers, like CARE House of Oakland County, can make a big difference.
In this candid conversation, Lisa reflects on her and her daughter's journey, what she's learned, and why she's such a vocal evangelist for CARE House.
