When one’s earliest memories center on ritualistic satanic abuse at the hands of those who should protect the most, your mother in particular, it can take a lifetime to overcome.  Add to this being sold by your mother as a teenager, and it becomes next to impossible to find restoration.  Valerie’s story is one such story of “familial pimping” where family sells their children, usually to support a parent’s drug habit. The trauma that Valerie has suffered and the depth of healing that she needs seems to be out of reach, however, by God’s grace as He empowers the staff and supporters of The WellHouse, Valerie is making progress daily in her recovery. She longs to one day minister to others who are hurting.
