Growing up my family was the first to have every child/teen come to our door with open arms, and to continue that I have done whatever I could to help better the lives of those around me. Children should never suffer the cruelty of the world at such a young age. They should in fact be allowed to be kids, and unfortunately not every child gets to do that. So that’s why I’m being brave and doing something I never would have done before to help bring awareness and take an active role with the McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy. I’m hoping that by being one of many that are going over the edge that we can make a difference and truly help put an end to child abuse, and to continue helping those that had endured with the therapy and the resources they need to get back to being a kid.
