There are so many children out there who are stuck in horrible home situations, with no way out.  Nearly 700,000 children in the United States are abused each year, and 26% of Canadians have reported being physically abused, and that's only the ones we know of.  So many children are either too afraid to seek help, or don't trust any adults with such information.  

I was one of the lucky ones, or so everyone thought.  One day I'd broken down, told a few friends.  They, as concerned citizens, told my teachers.  My teachers told the vice principal, who called the Children's Aid Society.  That's where everything went downhill.  I felt safe, told them everything, and I mean everything.  I thought they would take me away, free me.  Boy was I wrong.  

They called my father (my mother wasn't around at the time), brought him over to the school.  They told him everything I had told them, I was even quoted a few times.  They then called my mother and did the exact same thing.  They then closed the case and left, leaving me with two very angry parents, and so much worse off than before they'd arrived.  Years later I still have trust issues regarding all adults, and have developed C-PTSD, which, who knows, I might not have had had I just been taken away, sent to foster care.

After a few years, I made friends and discovered that I was not the only one who had gone through such experiences regarding Children's Aid.  Millions of kids have had the same experiences as me and just had them disregarded and shared with parents by Children's Aid or CPS.  This needs to change!
