OUR HEART

JAYME IS 14 YEARS OLD. HERE IS HER STORY.

“It started as a typical day checking my messages. I began a conversation with a guy I thought was my age, and after several months of connecting we decided to meet at the mall. He was more mature than I expected. He asked if we could go get ice cream, but we ended up at a hotel instead. I was terrified. He locked me in a room and told me he would do horrible things to my family if I didn’t do what he said. Sometimes that would mean 8-10 men a night. What was I to do?”
