There is hope, even on the darkest of days
Katariina Rosenblatt was a lonely and abused young girl, yearning to be loved, wanting attention. That made her the perfect target. On an ordinary day, she met a confident young woman--someone Kat wished she could be like--who pretended to be a friend while slowly luring her into a child trafficking ring. A cycle of false friendships, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.
As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, her ultimate escape, and her passionate efforts to now free other victims, you'll see that not only is sex trafficking happening frighteningly close to home--it's also something that can be stopped. Stolen is a warning, a celebration of survival, and a beacon of hope that will inspire you.
Sex trafficking. Such a hard topic. While we rarely give it much thought an think it's only in the movies, it's happening around us everyday. Katariina's memoir into her life as an abused and broken child tells the story of a troubled girl looking for love in all the wrong places. While I felt like each chapter I turned to it seemed it was just nothing but downfalls. When the girl was delivered from one trap she fell into another. I'm not sure how one person can be lured so many times, but then again I've never been in her shoes and in such a world of drugs, deception and lies.
It did open my eyes to human trafficking and the sex trade. Thankfully God is still God and He's still in the saving and delivering business. It seemed that despite all odds, Katariina has become a strong woman of God helping those who were in the same shoes as she was.
