This is Brinda Carey’s personal story combined with many resources for survivors, parents, teachers, social workers, etc. The book discusses facts about Carey’s experience including:
- Her biological father began abusing her at age 5
- He manipulated her into remaining silent
- The pregnancies and later deaths of two children conceived by him
- Forced into prostitution at age 14
- Her mother was physically abused by her father
- Her brother died at age 13
- Her search for answers and absolution
- Her dad's suicide
- How she overcame and where she is today
During Carey’s recovery, she met and helped other survivors of child abuse/incest. After recovery, she began teaching and speaking on the issue of child sexual abuse. In order to help more people, she wrote Don’t Cry, Daddy’s Here. Her passion is in promoting awareness, prevention, recovery, and offering hope to survivors.
Carey earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. Before retiring, due to medical disability (Fibromyalgia, neck, and throat problems), she worked in corrections and as an adult probation officer. She is on her 30th year of marriage with 4 married children, and 13 grandchildren.
Other than Don’t Cry, Daddy’s Here, Carey has written a short story(Christian Fiction), Grandma's Cactus Garden (.99 on Kindle), as well as several published articles. Most of her writing is non-fiction either on child abuse issues, family, Fibromyalgia, or writing; however, her fiction pieces also revolve around these subjects. She is a member of the RAINN speakers bureau (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) and does volunteer work with Saving Grace, a residential center for young women. The classes she gives for Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse are not for profit.
