It is mostly those who have been abused before as children and some as teens. Some right before they come to us with little or no help been offered for them. On occasion something happens while they are with us when they go home for weekends. We then act on that if they or family members notify us.
Every great once in a while an allegation is made on center and we act upon those as well. Yes, mostly female. With males it is about what has happened in their past. Males are less likely to come forward as you and others here are well aware of being true.
I do pretty good at blocking it all out but at times I can barely hang in there to do what needs to be done. Sometimes I think I need to look for other types of work. Too bad I have little talent.
