Small, dirty faces peer through smudged windows in a dark, wooded part of town. There are no friends to come over to play, no twinkling song of the ice-cream man, and sadly, no savior to hear shrieking cries of pain. Broken Child; Broken World, by Robert Theodore, is the true account of a child traumatized by years of physical and verbal abuse and neglect inflicted by those who were supposed to have loved him the most--his mother and father. Robert bravely relives the horrors of his nightmarish childhood so that other child victims of abuse might not have to fear for their lives or wonder when their next meal might be. Inside you will find a message of hope as Robert and his eleven family members appear on the Sally Jessy Raphael Show to confront their tormentors and spread a message of hope to those who are victims at the hands of loved ones. The miracle of this tragic situation is that humans have such an innate ability to seek healing and through sheer determination, in obtaining help, can achieve wonderful things in the healing process.
