Milk & Cookies: An Intimate Story About Rising Above the Trauma of Sexual Abuse

Milk and cookies shared between a grandfather and granddaughter became the first of many secrets Stacey would keep from her mom. With that first secret, her grandfather would gradually push the boundaries into inappropriate behaviour. Living in the low-income projects, Stacey grew up seeing her mom struggling as a single parent with her own demons and being physically and emotionally abused by her boyfriends. But their abuse knew no boundaries as they set their eyes on Stacey to satisfy their sexual needs, as well.

Being groomed by her grandfather and her mother’s boyfriends, Stacey perceived sexual exploitation as normal, and her life seemed destined to revolve around low expectations of herself and others. Stacey struggled to find her identity through her teen years, often turning to boys in school and young men around her for validation.

Stacey left home at eighteen to have her first child with her older boyfriend, whose family felt like an escape from the dysfunction she had known. Little did she know that she was headed for several more years of trauma and sadness, including the end of that relationship and the loss of custody of her children, followed by the death of a very special friend. However, as years pass, her hard-won wisdom anchored in her soul, Stacey overcame the depression, anxiety, and feelings of low self-worth that had haunted her for much of her life, to build a life for herself that she hadn’t before dared to dream.
