It is amazing that Jaycee Lee looks so normal, healthy, and bright after the HELL she endured for eighteen years. This goes to show how people need to put aside their preconceived notions about how victims “should” look and behave after going through a horrific childhood. Many people don’t believe others when they say they have been sexually abused as a child because the survivor looks fine. Humans have an incredible way of maintaining a facade of normalcy and can look good on the outside after they have been abused, tortured, and betrayed on the inside.
