Sex Trafficking: I Am Not For Sale! A Conversation with Edie Rhea
Edie’s father died when she was four years old; so when her mother brought a new man into her home, she welcomed him as her father. When she was nine years old, this man began regularly raping her in her home. By the time she was twelve, he was taking her to hotel rooms, where he trafficked her to men and women for the purpose of sex until she was seventeen. How does a child begin to recover from such monstrous treatment? Edie’s story offers help and hope to anyone who has been sexually abused, and shines a light on the spreading horror of sex trafficking in the United States. She offers people who work with children suggestions on how to spot a child who is being abused, and also how to help them. This compelling story uncovers a devastatingly dark side of humanity, but is also a message of help and hope for hurting people.
