Childhood is supposed to be a carefree time of joyful innocence. Sadly, that is not the experience of countless children including my half-sister. Fearful that she was pregnant with her father’s child, Mandy came to live with us when she was not quite fourteen years old. #MyFamilyToo is the story of God’s faithfulness during the five years we sought to help Mandy overcome the devastating impact of being sexually abused by her father. It is also our testimony of how God helped us to “live His answer” in the midst of other challenges that could have destroyed our faith.
