Pediatrician, mother of two, and one of nine children, Dr. Eccles has been caring for the needs of children and families for many years. In Hope Blooms After the Storm, she explores the deep scars of child sexual abuse and its social-emotional consequences in her life, while simultaneously revealing the healing hand of God. Her story was planted in secrecy as a pre-schooler, grown in despair and loneliness as a child and blossomed into hope, love and God’s amazing grace as a teen and young adult. The tragedy and sorrow sown by her abusive father was overgrown by the many Holy Spirit directed and tenderly nurtured experiences, and opportunities that brought to light the evil at work in her home, all of which laid the foundation for where she is today. Read along in laughter, joy, sadness, anger, frustration and hope as she recounts the amazing work of God in the life of an unlikely young girl who follows in the footsteps of Esther, asking “Isn’t every day just such a time as this?”

Contained in this book is encouragement and gentle instruction for anyone who is or ever has been sexually abused, and for anyone else who might be in a position to help someone who has been. Whether you are struggling with the decision to speak up for the first time, or you are supporting someone who has made that courageous step, you will find understanding here. Even if you do not know of anyone who has suffered in this way, there are carefully constructed discussions that you can have with your child or grandchild to help prevent the long-term consequences of child sexual abuse on the next generation.

About the Author Terry Eccles, a pediatrician for more than fifteen years, lives in Connecticut with her husband and two sons. It’s clear on your first visit to her office that you are welcome. Unique picturesque murals completely transform the office into a quaint New England town, personalized with delightful artwork from her patients. Dr. Eccles’ practice gives priority to caring for the whole child, not just the sick parts. Taking the time to make a difference in the lives of those who have been entrusted to her care is paramount. Sitting on the floor, building Mr. Potato Head and making crayon tracings of hands and feet are part of the process of delivering personalized care. Abuse prevention and recognition is a priority. Those goals are effectively accomplished by ensuring that children hear one message loud and clear: “You are important and anything you bring to Dr. Eccles will be taken seriously.”
