I was between 8 and 10 years old when it happened. Unfortunately, I don't actually remember how old I actually was (abuse occurred twice at the hands of a man who lived in my neighborhood), as I can't yet piece together the memories that specifically. I remember the incident, but I can't remember enough about me at that time to know how old I actually was.

Feel free to PM me if you have something you need to share with someone privately.
