For the first five years of Derek’s life he suffered brutal child abuse before being abandoned into the Alameda County foster care system. (San Francisco bay area) What’s even crazier is that he suffered abuse prenatally. When his biological mother was 7 months pregnant, his angry biological dad threw her to the ground and continued to stomp on her stomach in an effort to kill Derek himself. He was upset that she did not have an abortion after he sexually abused her.

PTSD is a huge factor in these kind of situations and it took Derek years of therapy as well as EMDR therapy to help him overcome the major obstacles that come with abuse. He will tell you that he is not only a survivor but a thriver, and one that doesn’t let his past infect his future any longer.
