FA was once a lively young girl. She was beautiful, adventurous and the “ham of every photo,” as described by her mother. But when she was just 10 years old, her stepfather began abusing her behind her mom’s back. FA kept the abuse a secret for years, but when she turned 12, she finally decided to tell her mother.
They pressed charges, but they were forced to wait three long years for a trial, and FA spent all of that time writhing in fear and worry. She wasn’t able to sleep, showered with her clothes on and fought suicidal thoughts daily.
… That was until FA was introduced to BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse). These rough and tough men and women work around the clock protecting victims of child abuse to help them move past their fears. As one BACA member stated, “We are scarier than their perpetrator. We are scarier than their demons. It works.”
“We are that single strand of barbwire between hell and happiness for them,” added another.
Watch how these amazing men used their strength for good in an effort to transform this once scared little girl into the beautiful woman that she is today.
