Tonight's special guest is Mike H from Alabama, a child abuse survivor who's making his first "special guest" appearance with us. Mike's a fan of the "Stop Child Abuse Now" show and tells us it's helped him a great deal to listen and learn from our previous episodes. Now he joins us, hoping he can help others. This is the first time he will be telling his story. Mike's abuse began when he was a very young child. He played the "scapegoat" role in his family, and the experience extended all the way into his 30s. There were many struggles along the way. "I would run away and end up in foster care," he writes. But each time he did he'd eventually end up back home where he'd get even more abuse. Mike is in the process of writing his story in the form of an autobiographical book, which he shares has helped him in coming to understand himself. He hopes publishing it might help other adult victims / survivors of child abuse find recovery. Mike's upbeat and optimistic about continuing his own journey, but also approaches healing with his eyes open. He knows it'll not be easy. Mike credits his wonderful wife with being his rock, and his children for being his inspiration.
