Covid-19 Update: With the spread of Covid-19, The Blue Ribbon Project is following guidance from our local and state government and will be postponing all Volunteer events until further notice. Mirah's Closet and other portions of The Blue Ribbon Project are OPEN by appointment.
One of the things that can be helpful in the healing process is knowing you are not alone. I've found it helpful that, while my story is unique to me, I do have something in common with other survivors. We have invited survivors to share their stories...from abuse to surviving and thriving. We also invite you to share your story, no matter where you are in your journey. Your story can and will inspire others. In this section, you'll find such stories.View items...
While this book doesn't fall in-line with Child Abuse, it does tell a remarkable story about SURVIVAL after a trauma. This book also hits somewhat close to home as I both live and work in the city in which this happened. When I first joined Annapolis Police, I did not know Jennifer Wheately-Wolf. In 2010, I heard the rumblings of a "cold case". I then began looking into the case. I discovered that some of my co-workers had worked this case.
You see, back in 1988, Jennifer Wheatley-Wolf became the victim of one of the most serious crimes imaginable. For many years, the person responsible had walked free from prosecution....until a fingerprint hit came back in 2010 and the case moved full steam ahead. It wasn't until things were in motion that I had the opportunity to meet Jennifer and see the outcome of the case. It was Jennifer's book that helped me continue my growth as a survivor and not a victim. It is for this reason, I feel her book is important, even for survivors of child abuse. Jennifer has also been a huge supporter of this website and our mission in helping others.Please check out her book...you will not regret it!
