Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse

I was reading a blog by Tracie and I saw that she was doing this blog carnival and need host blogs.  This is something that is near and dear to my heart because I have gone through it.  I haven’t blogged about this subject on my blog but I am going to post some of my story because I hope that one person will read it and it can help them.  I copied the following from Tracie’s blog.
The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is a monthly event. It’s purpose is to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse. All forms of abuse–physical, emotional, sexual, spiritual, verbal–are discussed. 

We highlight blog posts, from child abuse survivor stories and their art & poetry, to child abuse as a topic in the news media, as well as PTSD, dissociation and other areas of the abuse “aftermath” that adult survivors are forced to deal with. We link to hopeful posts about therapy, recovery and healing from abuse. All forms of child advocacy and awareness are included.

Many months we have a theme, but no matter what the theme is, we accept submissions for our regular categories:
-Advocacy and Awareness
-Healing and Therapy
-In the News
-Survivor Stories
-Art Therapy

I am going to need all the articles to me by January 26.  I will be posting all the articles on the 28th of January.  I am not going to have a theme because I can’t think of one.  If you would like to host a month leave me a comment or send a email directly to Tracie at:

You can send them to me at:

    Thanks for hosting this month. I am a survivor and just recently found Traci and now you. I was reading the last Blog Carnival when I found other really amazing people who have experienced some of the same things I did, as a child.

    I decided to submit a poem. I am so thankful to know there is a place that is safe to speak out.

    Thanks so much for hosting this. I'm going to participate a few times to get a handle on it then I might host one myself. It's so important to get the message out there – it's like mental illness- its taboo and makes people uncomfortable – but eyes must be opened. Shah .X
