One in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthdays. These are startling statistics. Almost any child you see could be keeping the terrible secret of their sexual or physical abuse. Nationally, more than 3 million children are reported as victims of abuse each year. In Oakland County thousands of cases of abuse are reported annually.
