For those of you who have visited here before, you're probably noticing some changes.  I have decided to take this site to the next level.  As I am healing, I find that my need to help others grows stronger each day. 
  This site will be devoted to information regarding abuse related crimes and illnesses/disorders/conditions, as well as stories and works by survivors.  This site will also be devoted to my second passion...writing, art, and poetry.
As my healing progresses, I find that I have no reason to hide behind 'a secret identitiy'.  I wasn't the one who did anything wrong.  Although I like Gabriel, Nicole Thomas is my writing name (pen name).  My abusers are still free, but I feel that they will be judged by a much higher power than a court of law, and that is good enough for me.
 
I warn those that come here: this site contains mature material that many may find hard to believe.  I have tried to make it as safe as I can, but you can not mask any type of ab*se or it's affects.  The affects of child ab*se or any ab*se are devestating.  My goal here is to show what abuse does and how we can make a difference, just by speaking out.  I refuse to be a victim any longer!
  I would like to dedicate this site to all of us survivors, and unfortuneately, possibly those suffering abuse now.  I pray for all of us to one day find peace. Thank you for visiting!
****also, I have marked the things that could be triggering, by **T**, and I've lessened the impact of "trigger words" with the * sign.  I want everyone to feel safe when they come to my home.*****
Molly and the Secret
By Nicole Thomas
  Many parents often wonder how to teach their young children about good touches/bad touches and secrets.  I was among those parents.  As a abuse survivor myself, I am constantly worried about my daughters.  I do talk to them about good and bad touches and to tell mommy or daddy if someone hurts them or makes them do something they don't want too.  But I felt that wasn't enough. So I wrote a children's book about this subject called Molly and The Secret.

This site will have some down links for a couple of days.  I'm redoing it.  Thanks for your patience.

***This is in honor of my mother, who has survived Breast Cancer for over 2 years now.
I Love you, Mom.....26 cents.
I highly recommend this book by Susan Kesegich.  This book is about her life.  It's honest and straight forward.  I promise that once you pick it up, you won't put it down until you're finished.
