Fiona by Asha Lightbearer

Fiona is the story of child sexual abuse survivors everywhere–abused by the people they know and trust, and most often silently carrying the pain and shame of that abuse into their adult lives and relationships.

Only when we are willing to face what happened to us, feel the pain, and grieve the loss of our innocence, can we begin to move forward in a constructive way. When we can talk about what happened to us openly and unashamedly, then we know we are well on our path to recovery and a happy, healthy life.

Message to survivors:
Please know that you are not alone in your journey. There are many of us, and together we can heal and thrive, even after abuse.

Through our parent project, HelpforCSA.com, survivors have access to multiple healing and wellness resources.

  • Visit our sister site, HelpforSurvivors.org, for wellness articles, legal resources, podcast episodes, and other resources hand-picked for CSA survivor support and recovery.
  • Are you creative? Share your original art, music, photography, poetry or other creative works in our Survivors Speak arts blog.

Message to family members and partners of survivors:
We recognize that being with a survivor has its own challenges: from lack of trust to unexpected triggers.

For education and support, visit HelpforSurvivors.org, where you’ll find books and articles for partners, parents and family members, as well as survivors. Also be sure to visit our recommended support groups for family and friends, also available on the HelpforSurvivors website.
