March Edition - Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse

at The Hope For Trauma. 
This month's theme is Springtime, with the focus on "spring" as an adjective.

I want to thank Hope for all the work she did this month, hosting and organizing the carnival. There are a lot of great submissions. I hope that you will be blessed as you read through them, and show some support to those who have shared their hearts and healing journeys with us this month.

Thank you for raising your voice and speaking out against child abuse. 

The purpose of the Carnival is to share important posts with others who may not be frequent readers of an author's blog, and expose one's work to a wider audience. There are so many wonderful bloggers who are contributing to the cause of ending and recovering from child abuse. If you, as a reader or author, know of other blogs that you find helpful, please encourage them to submit to an upcoming issue of the Carnival Against Child Abuse; and please bookmark that page so we can continue to receive high quality submissions from a wide swath of bloggers.


  1. This was a great carnival. Am I right that you will host the April carnival, and if so, what will the theme be? I am sorry I am not able to submit posts through the site as a CAPTCHA is required, so I will be submitting my post in a comment.

  2. Hey Tracie, I've followed you here from JackB's blog. If I can hok you up with an invite to Triberr, dont hesitate to get in touch. My email is dino.dogan at gmail

  3. I am really struggling (emotionally) right now with a recent revelation of truth that I can't write on my own blogs. I was sitting talking to my brother this weekend (he works for a childrens home and has a lot of interaction with kids who have suffered all kinds of abuse) and we were talking about choosing how we react to what happens to us. He just casually dropped it into the conversation that he had been sexually molested by a neighbor as a pre-teen. I was shocked! And yet in a way it made so many things click into place. He was so angry at that age and now I know why. My heart breaks for him and what was done to him. But I'm also a little confused. Why did we never talk about these things? Why were our experiences swept into a closet and then we have spent decades leaning against those doors protecting our secrets. I'm not sure exactly what I'm trying to say here but ...

    Bless you, and the others, for standing up, for opening the closet doors, for speaking truth, for saying you are not alone, it is not your fault and it doesn't have to define you!

    Thank you for being brave!
