Eva's Story

When 14 year-old Eva videochatted her school social worker, it was clear something was wrong. Eva was usually chatty, but sometimes she would look offscreen and suddenly become silent. The social worker finally found out why when they met in-person a few weeks ago. Eva’s stepdad raped her when she was seven. The abuse began again during the pandemic when she was home alone with him while her mom was at work. Every time Eva tried to tell her, he came into the room. Eva and her mom are devastated, but at CAC there is hope. Eva disclosed the details of the abuse to our Forensic Interviewer, Melanie, which is the first step to a criminal investigation. And, she and her mom have started seeing our therapists who are specially trained in overcoming abuse and trauma.
