We all know numbers aren’t words but they can certainly tell a story.
The Advocacy Network for Children listens to children tell their stories everyday. They tell their stories in their homes, in interview rooms and in courtrooms. We listen as they tell us the things they don’t want anyone to know. They tell us their pain and heartbreak, and they tell us what they love and enjoy. We see their faces and hear their voices. All of them. There are more than ever. The numbers grow every year. Their faces are in color but the numbers are black and white.
