As a mother, advocacy has become more of a calling than just a pasttime endeavor for Carrie. It is her desire to inform and encourage others of how prevelent child abuse is so every reader can become a part of the solution. It’s up to each and every one of us, to SAVE THEM ALL.
Carrie’s first two novels place you in a time when ‘Amber Alerts’ and ‘Facebook shares’ did not exist. There was no googling sexual predators in your neighborhood nor were there signs on the freeway alerting drivers of missing children. Life was simple, but evil has always existed. We weren’t as aware of it as we are now, because it wasn’t as readily in our faces. However, it existed. And often, prevailed.
Between four and seven children die at the hands of abuse or neglect in the United States, EACH DAY. In the ten seconds it takes you to read this short paragraph, someone is reporting child abuse to an agency.
IMAGINE THE ONES WHO FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS!
Won’t you join Carrie in the movement to raise awareness on child abuse and neglect.
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. —Psalm 82:3–4 (NIV)
Every person can help make a difference in a child’s life.
