I was adopted for the purposed of being both sex and labor trafficked at the age of 18 months old, by my adopted parents. This continued into other types of trafficking including child soldiering and organ harvesting (tonsils).

I’ve been repeatedly sold in a sexual manner on nearly a daily basis to people in a position of trust. That included teachers, doctors, police/fire, neighborhood parents, family members, school administration, therapist/counselor, coaches, members of the military (active and inactive), older children, strangers, and foreigners.

I have been trafficked both domestically and internationally (Tijuana, Mexico) to both males and females. That includes being flown across state lines to the highest bidder. I’ve been subjected to psychological conditioning via physical/emotional/psychological pain being used in conjunction with a variety of psychotropic drugs (LSD PCP, alcohol, BZ, opiates, anti-anxiety medications, etc.) in order to make me more compliant. After getting sold I would immediately have amnesia of the even due to PTSD and being classically conditioned.

I was child soldiered by my parents–a retired military member in Woodlands, TX in the mid-1990s kidnapped me and forced me to go through 3 hunger-games-style tournaments that only ended after I released roughly a dozen fellow capture children from their bonds and the fire department found me chained to a post in a house–everyone else found dead.

This still goes on today…
