Advocate, Founder of S.O.A.P.
Lockey Maisonneuve calls herself the “Girl Raised by Wolves.” She had abusive, neglectful parents and hated when people told her she couldn’t heal until she forgave her abusers. She found healing through yoga and was able to release her pain, and now she teaches others. Listen to this podcast.
In the late 1970’s, in a gritty N.J. town, an adolescent girl is unwittingly handed a one-way ticket by her mother to allegedly “visit” her estranged father in Florida. Young and vulnerable, Lockey Maisonnueve has no idea she is being abandoned and sent to live with a vile and dangerous pedophile who would spend the next several years violently raping, abusing and mercilessly selling his daughter’s body into childhood prostitution to other adult men.
