Hello Wayne.


Welcome to AS.  I am very sorry for what happened to you as a child, but you have found a very supportive site.  The members are kind and understanding.  It takes great courage to report, and I congratulate you for being able to do so.  Hopefully you will prevent this vile person from hurting anyone else.  I wish you well on your healing journey.
