One local author is sharing her story of surviving child abuse and hoping to raise awareness that we must let it be our duty to look out for our children.
Surviving the Devil
An Account of Adoption and Abuse
by Angie Cox


It's not often a child comes face-to-face with the Devil, but my twin brother, David, and I lived with him. "He" was actually a "she", and her name was Mrs. Lawrence, our foster mother.

Born in a prison and addicted to heroin as infants, five-month-old Angie and her twin David are sent to live with the Lawrences. They have a house but no family as they grow up without knowing love. Their foster mother mercilessly beats them, forces them to eat their own feces, kills their pets, and locks them in their rooms for days with no food. As Angie ages, she is locked in a coal shed, faces constant degradation, and falls victim to sexual abuse. She knows she has to escape, but how?

Surviving the Devil is a factual account of abuse at the hands of an erratic, violent woman, as famously depicted on the Trisha Show and through the Irwin Mitchell court case. Though Angie sees no light at the end of the tunnel, she finds solace in her twin. They share an undying, pure love for one another and a resolve to come out of the house...alive.
