As a survivor I had never disclosed to anyone. I was afraid no one would believe me. At 24 years old I still had these fears but even more powerful was the thought that he might still be hurting other kids just like he did me. I wondered too if I was the only one of my family he did this too. Then I heard about SADS. I felt a strong responsibility to report him, to see if others had done the same, to let the police know so the next kid might be believed, even if I wasn’t.  SADS gave me the tool to disclose the identity of this person anonymously and without the trauma of a police station. I know all I could do was tell someone so I did. I did it through SADS. Now he is in jail and my nieces are finally safe. Thank you Bravehearts. Jennifer, QLD
