The 25th Story

“I realized a long time ago that it was risky for me to talk about my story. Then it occurred to me that it’s also risky for the listener because you never know where someone is in their own life or what their story is.” Cris is the daughter of two parents with intellectual disabilities who neglected her and left her vulnerable to abuse. From the age of 7 to 12, a family member raped and sexually abused her.
