This is very triggering for me because I was a survivor of an abduction and feel everything he went through. May he rest in peace. I will have more to say on this one but I need to get to sleep tonight. I couldn't even tell anyone, suppressed the memory of what happened until after my brother's suicide. I think part of that mental break had to do with reconciling my bonding and cooperation with the perp. My mother rescued my brother and I from what she thought was a custody dispute abduction. I would have told on my own mother knowing he would have killed here had I been able. I woke up over thirty years later (15 years after he died), in terror that he was in the house and coming after me. I hear people saying these kids should have escaped and I want to scream at them. I also want to scream at law enforcement who want to "protect" the children by denying them the chance to face their abuser in court.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
