One human trafficking survivor’s story

■ By Melissa Diaz Hernandez / Reporter Below is the story of a local trafficking survivor, whose name has been changed to Abigail to protect her identity. It will not, under any circumstances, ever be revealed. Abigail grew up locally. She learned from a very early age that if anything happens to her that it is a result of her actions; that she did something wrong. This was constantly reinforced by family, including her mother and later, after she married, her in-laws. Her parents separated when she was a baby. She remembers telling her mother when she was with her dad that she did not want to visit him any longer
