Keeping Moms Safe

A good friend of mine from high school survived a horrific ordeal several years ago and has started a website to spread the word about what happened to her. Her story is unbelievable and this very strong woman has started talking to women's groups telling her story, hoping to prevent something like this from happening to anyone else. Her attacker has recently launched another appeal and she has started this website to support keeping him in jail to serve his 7 life sentences.

This is her story...

Keeping Moms Safe
I am the mother of two children who was abducted from my daughter's church pre-school and brutally raped multiple times in October 2002. This event occurred in a safe neighborhood in the middle of the day. After a four year legal battle, my rapist was finally sentenced to 7 consecutive life sentences for what he did to my family. Now, I have made it my personal mission to spread the message of safety to other moms with the hopes that their heightened awareness will ward off similar attacks.
