Tonight's special guest is Heather Davis from Fort Worth, Texas, a survivor of many kinds of child abuse. "I was taken away by CPS in 1985," she reports. "I have many adult survivor stories." She's also the mother of two child who was trafficked, her daughters. Her oldest was trafficked for five years and her youngest after 6 days. It was when Heather's youngest daughter was taken that she realized that her oldest daughter was a victim of a very serious crime, and she reached out for help. "I am very passionate about ending this terrible crime human trafficking. It was the worst feeling anyone could ever imagine," Heather says. "I am very blessed that she was returned. Not all parents facing this issue get the chance that we did." She goes on, "Since this has happened I have been very active in the study of human trafficking, conferences around the world." Since this has happened Heather's been very active in the study of human trafficking, attending conferences around the world, and reading every training manual and protocol she can get her hands on. "I struggled time and time again. Trying to get any help as a parent of a trafficked daughter seemed impossible. I am still reaching out to as many organizations and people that I can to educate and spread the word about human trafficking the second largest growing enterprise in the U.S and globally." Heather concludes, "I would like to see more parents and caregivers come forward and speak about human trafficking and help more people understand this phenomenon that we are facing right here in our own back yard." She invites everyone to join her as she moves forward with her work helping parents, community, professionals, and caregivers."
