When I originally started Dandelion Soapbox, I wanted it to be a platform for speaking truth. That idea is inherent in the name. However, I never wanted it to be a platform for just my truth.
If you live in any of 16 specific states, even if you are not a mandated reporter, if you suspect child abuse, you legally have to report it. I wish more people had looked out for me and my sibling. It's an idea that makes me furious and sad all the time; why didn't anyone notice? Or if they did, why didn't they do anything?
