I lived my life in the shadows, I lived my life in shame. For years I hid my secrets from everyone that I cared about, because I didn’t want them to consider me broken. I am not broken, I am a survivor. This is a compilation of both books written by Desire Night. I Love You Baby Girl, and I Learned to Love Myself. The author has added new text, and has also included some distressing child abuse statistics. Child Abuse Statistics: A report of child abuse is made in the United States every 10 seconds. More than five children die each day as a result of child abuse. 80% of those children that die from child abuse are under the age of 4. 50-60% of child fatalities due to abuse are not even recognized and documented on death certificates. 90% or more of juvenile sexual abuse victims know their perpetrator. Child abuse has no socioeconomic barriers, it crosses all lines, and can be found in all religions and educational levels. Approximately 30% of abused and neglected children will continue the cycle of abuse by abusing their own children. It costs the United States an estimated $124 billion a year to help children of abuse and neglect.
