Recently my daughter, almost 13, came close to being groomed by a predator online. At first I was angry at myself because I work for a domestic violence and sexual assault agency. I thought, how could I let this happen? I’m trained to know better, what to look for. Then I was scared, scared of how this could of gone rather than how it did. And sadness came rushing over me. Sad for my daughter and what she had to learn. But through the support of family, friends and most of all the strength God has given me I see now. Today I am going to be a part of a human trafficking presentation and I feel in my heart this is something that God wants me to present, He wants me to use this as an opportunity to teach others. So now, I am grateful, grateful to be given such a task and responsibility.
