In the drop down pages, Brenda tells her true story of child abuse, running away, being locked up and eventually finding a foster family that loves her. These are Brenda’s own words written on now old yellowed notebooks over the past 40 years. You will be shocked by the treatment she received not only from her mother and stepfather but also from the justice system that put her behind bars. Children continue to be mistreated today and are put behind bars sometimes because there is no where else to put them. Read her words so that you are aware of the crimes that occur against children and do whatever you have to ensure this injustice stops. Children do not belong behind bars.
