“I believe that the most precious resource that we have is our children. They are full of joy, innocence and potential. Your childhood should be filled with happiness, security and learning. It is my goal to do my very best to help children who have had their childhoods stolen from them. I have a team of incredible people who have the same commitment as me. It is a difficult struggle to overcome the psychological problems of childhood abuse. It is equally difficult to overcome the legal obstacles to obtain justice for victims of childhood abuse. With your help, determination and courage, we will work together as a team to hold the abusers accountable and to try and make your life more comfortable.” – Robert Lee
