Welcome to the Blog Against Child Abuse - September 2013 Edition!

-Sandra from Don't tell... submitted Capturing the Thoughts
She wrote: In my misery, I can still marvel that one memory can cause a cascade of pointy fragments.

-David Pittman from Together We Heal submitted Waiting To Be Found
He wrote: The loneliest feeling in the waiting to be found.

Healing & Therapy:
-Paul from Mind Parts submitted The Hole Reality
He wrote: After somewhat of a break, I am back to writing on my blog again, writing in a somewhat different voice than I have in the past: with more perspective on what my healing has been about. Thank you to all the wonderful survivors contributing to the collective healing voice we all have!

-David Pittman from Together We Heal submitted You Have Worth And Are Worthy
He wrote: It's an uplifting post for all survivors or for anyone feeling less than worthy of love.

In The News:
-Mike McBride from Child Abuse Survivor submitted Another Convicted Molester gets No Jail Time
He wrote: Let’s not assume that all of our efforts to raise awareness of the damage done by child abusers has gone for nothing. There are still other examples where it is making a big difference. These are disturbing stories, but they are outliers.

Survivor Stories:
-EmmaSurviver submitted My Bio

-iamnotbubba from Perpetually Healing submitted Homicide
He wrote: My website is devoted to sharing my story as well as inspiring others to heal and thrive. A way to "redirect the shame" back to the perpetrator.

The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse and to share important posts with others who might not be frequent readers of an author's blog. 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 Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse so we can continue to receive high quality submissions from a wide swath of bloggers.

Many thanks to all of you who shared your hearts and stories with us, and to all of you who read the submissions and show your support. You keep this carnival, the awareness, support, and healing going each month.

To provide another way for you to stay in contact with the blog carnival, and make sure you don't miss any updates, we have a Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse Facebook Page.

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


  1. I am so thankful to the people who open up their souls and write about this very difficult topic. It's not easy to do, but it's so important. We need to shine a light on child abuse to stop it and support survivors. Thanks for posting about this blog carnival, Tracie! --Lisa

    1. I agree with Lisa...I am thankful for people like you and others that are willing to share about this topic. I'm sure it can be easy!

  2. I unintentionally blogged about child abuse last night. I'm in the middle of a PTSD event. Ugh! It's not a great place to be. I'm grateful I know what it is and have the resources and support to get through it.

    I hope you are well. I'll try to get to some of these posts later today. Happy Sharefest. Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  3. So very brave, these writers, and I can imagine what a resource they are to those who find themselves in situations such as these. I hope you realize what power you have in your words to someone who can relate and needs to find them.

    I'm fortunate enough to have never dealt with child abuse or been part of it as a parent.
