How and where do I begin to share with you a family’s story so horrendous, it would be hard to whisper of, even among the shadows? 

And yet it’s a story that must come to light in order to protect the victims and prevent further victimization. 

Audrey Kauffman, a mother of 5, discovered her 3 daughters were being raped by her then husband, their own father.  Like any normal mother, she immediately moved her babies to safety, exposed the abuse, pressed criminal charges, and divorced him. The predator, Mike Kauffman, will be serving 5-10 years in a state penitentiary.   

You would think that would be the end of their victimization and peace and healing could begin ~ but that is not the case. 

Because they live in a small, rural Amish/ Mennonite community, their support network and entire church community have turned their backs on Audrey and her 5 children and shunned her. 

Audrey is the sole supporter of her 5 children and provides for them as a massage therapist. Not only are senior members with powerful influence within the Amish community fighting to have Mike’s court ordered child support dropped, they have also contacted Audrey’s massage clients within their community and told them to stop using her.  

This is a revengeful and deliberate attempt by “deeply religious” people, to utterly destroy Audrey and any financial capacity she has to provide for her children ~ the innocent victims of this unthinkable crime.  

Not only have these innocent children been traumatized by their own flesh and blood father, but now they are being retraumatized by a social system that protects sexual predators, spearheaded by the religious “elders”.  

Audrey needs to get state licensing in order to begin practicing massage therapy outside of this community.  The challenge she’s in, is that she currently works 14 hours a day and has the needs of 5 survivor children to attend to daily.  

This GiveSendGo is being established by several of her friends who want to show her and her precious children, that there ARE still good people in this world and that they ARE ALL worthy of being protected!!  

We would love to see enough money raised to cover all of Audrey’s massage therapy schooling expenses, as well as, enough for 7 months’ income so she can focus solely on her education, rather than working 14 hour days and then trying to do night school, all while being all things needed for her 5 kiddos in recovery.  

Please open your heart to this beautiful family and donate whatever amount you feel led to. Then “Share, Share, Share” this link to as many people as you possibly can to help get the word out.  Miracles still happen and God knows, this precious family desperately needs one. 💔
