Sarai – Abused & Left Behind


Sarai says she was sexually abused by her stepfather for five years. During a family vacation to California, she says a physically assault by him required her to seek medical treatment. Sarai woke up in the hospital to a social worker telling her that her mother and stepfather flew back to Texas without her. At 15, she entered the foster system but ran away two years later and began using and selling drugs.
