Meet Our Characters
The My Name is ME Story
We have a vision of the future where all children grow up at their own pace with the freedom to dance in the rain and laugh the way only children can for as long as possible.
Unfortunately, that future is not yet here. Our children are facing trauma and abuse and issues that we as adults are hardly ready to handle, let alone understanding or knowing how to talk to and protect our children from every situation.
In this series of children’s stories, My Name is ME hopes to shed light to the predators and problems lurking in the lives of our children. We follow four young people through their struggles and ultimate victory by overcoming their fears and using their voice:
Mary Elizabeth is abused by someone in the family and afraid to speak up.
Jason is abused by his coach and doesn’t know how to speak and be heard.
Lily faces bullying at the hands of other children.
May parent's are getting divorced and she doesn't know how to navigate the situation .
These are not light hearted, books as the imagery would suggest. They are based in real stories of real children who are suffering. Our goal is to support you, the parent with the tools you need to talk to your children BEFORE they become prey to a predator. Our goal is to support you the teacher to recognize when your children are hurting. Our goal is to support you the community to be voice that our children so desperately need, when you see something, say something. Our goal is to support you the legislator to create change from a higher level. Our goal is for our children to be SAFE.
My Name is ME is here to HEAR these young voices and BELIEVE them. We are here to be the VOICE for those who do not know or cannot speak for themselves. We are here to SUPPORT those who have been neglected and abused and to EMPOWER those who are growing beyond what has happened to them.
Join us in changing the narrative so our children can grow up safe and empowered to stand up for themselves and others.
