My story is one that no parent should have to experience. I want all parents out there to know that you are not alone. The struggle is real. Very real! I pray for all these lost children morning, noon and night. My child was found alive but these abusers killed her spirit. It will be a long uphill battle to her recovery. I will keep fighting for our children. Promise. My heart breaks. 💔
I am the mother and grandmother of a 15 year old girl who was led astray by social media. She became a missing child. I was frantic! Chat rooms are death traps for our vulnerable children. The sex traffickers are out there making billions of dollars at the expense of our children’s mental health and lives. It is sick! Makes me want to fight even harder for our children. I have been up close and personal with the enemy. I am fighting the good fight. And I will never ever ever give up!
Sage started going thru gender confusion in 8th grade due to the influence of fellow students. She was attending a small school and Sage informed me that all the girls were either bi, trans, or lesbian. So she decided to advise her friends and teachers she wanted to be trans and Sage would no longer be her name. She requested to be called Draco and be a boy. To which the school obliged as it’s a law. Unfortunately, they legally did not have to inform me, her legal mother. I wish I had known. This would have been a much different story.
Last August of 2021, Sage started 9th grade at the local high school. She was bullied and became extremely vulnerable and soon exploited online. She decided to run away from home on Aug. 25th. I immediately notified the local sheriff. Her case quickly escalated and the FBI and US Marshall became involved. Sage had been sex trafficked from Virginia into Washington DC and then transported to Maryland. The FBI and Marshals found her at the home of the abuser being kept in a locked room on Sept 2, 2021.
