I have forgiven her and that was a huge step. But I will never forget. Thousands of children are being abused every second. If you suspect a child is being abused, reach out to them. October is National Domestic Awareness Month…Help save a child.

The outfit had white rick-rack trim around the entire border of the shorts and top.
