Father's Touch Addresses Sexual Abuse Within A Jehovah?s Witness Family
?Father?s Touch (Second Edition) by Donald D?Haene is the foremost book exploding the myth of male adult survivors of child sexual abuse.? (PRWEB) October 20, 2004 -- LTI Publishing has just released a new book called Father?s Touch (second edition) by Donald D?Haene. This autobiography takes readers through the eyes of a child going into adulthood who was sexually abused by his own father. With over 1.8 million child abuse cases reported a year (and an unimaginable amount that is not reported); Father?s touch gives a realistic, haunting view into what a sexually abused child experiences, thinks, and feels.
Although this book shows the true nature of a predator and the children that suffered, it is the true story of survivorship. Not only is this book the Survivor?s Book of this decade, but it will be so for generations to come. Donald D?Haene is more than a survivor, he is a victor. He has turned adversity into a crusade, especially for male victims of child sexual abuse, who are rarely recognized in today?s society.
Father?s Touch is now available online at www.FathersTouch.com or www.Amazon.com and is soon to be released in bookstores across America and Canada. Father?s Touch is now available at a discounted rate until its general release in January 2005.
With all of the much-publicized turmoil regarding child sexual abuse by church clergy and other cases in the news, it is time that our nation addresses this very serious problem. Father?s Touch is an eye opener and makes a compelling argument for further reform and legal statutes that protect our children. Every library and school in this country should have a copy of this book. Help educate society on this serious issue by donating a copy to your local school or library.
Congrats, and best of luck!

Couldn't agree more.
Congratulations Donald! Thanks for sharing this.
Big Tex & Under 74 Thanks! I know Big Tex, you read the book. So you know how surreal it is for me to go from a person who never talked to all what I do now. My old town high school bought the book for their library - can you believe that? It is great to know that at least one victim of abuse might see themselves in my story and report the abuse and get help! This high school also wants me to come to the school and speak to them about my experience. Boy, they don't know what they are in for! LOL

I'm really glad to hear this. I don't know about you, but it would have meant the world for an abuse survivor to come talk about his story. After reading your book, I know we shared a common experience in high school. It's bad enough being a Witness in high school but to have abuse on your back as well kind of drives you into a corner. Hopefully your story can reach someone in need.
Definitely! When I was in high school I never ever talked about my experience and I never heard it talked about by anyone else.
We live in a different world today, yet look how many children are still abused? Things have not changed enough, but that doesn't mean we can't make a difference.
thanks for your support!
