Recently, my work impacted my own family in a very positive way. My fifteen year old niece approached me and shared with me that she’s decided to be a therapist who works with children. She then shared with me that she’d been mentoring children at her school and shared with me several things she’d done including helping a peer who she discovered had been sexually abused. She had learned what to do when a child is sexually abused from listening to me. I was completely taken off guard. I had not realized that she had been watching me or the impact my work had on my own family! That was a very cool moment.
