Brinda is happily married to the man who rescued her from a life of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Together, they broke several dysfunctional cycles and raised four beautiful children who love the Lord. Playing with her twelve grandchildren brings joy to her life, and she anxiously awaits the birth of another grandchild due in 2012.
She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and recently retired from a position as an adult probation officer. Writing a book about her life experiences has long been a passion of hers in order to reach out to other child abuse survivors. Completion of this memoir has been a labor of love and is dedicated to the two sons who were a result of sexual abuse by her biological father. They died in 1976 and 1981.
Creating awareness of the ongoing problem of child abuse, specifically incest, is the basis for much of her writing. Brinda also accepts speaking engagements to inform the public and offer hope for those in recovery. She is a member of the RAINN Speakers Bureau and VOICE Today, Inc.
Brinda’s book, Don’t Cry, Daddy’s Here is not easy to read. It is not a cozy, friendly little book meant to cheer you up and brighten your day. It is, however, a starkly true story of what happened to a little girl born in Texas in 1960.
Her first 22 years were an unimaginable hell – unimaginable, that is, to those of you who haven’t experienced your own version of that hell. Sexual abuse and manipulation by a deplorable father and a descent into the emotional wasteland of promiscuity are just two of the facets of that inferno.
Can anyone ever recover from the unrelenting sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of their parents? Brinda Carey did. Her message of hope and renewal is for every abuse survivor living alone with her pain – and it is for everyone who wishes to know about the resilience of the human spirit and the power of love and forgiveness.
