Darla’s father is a pimp, so she grew up in the world of trafficking. She had many mothers living around her as a young girl. She saw her father beat them and give them drugs, but that was just the way of life. Her father got her a first “date” when she was 13. Her youth was beaten, stripped, and stolen from her.
Darla, now 30, is still working the stable. It’s the life she has always known. Her daughter is 11 and she fears for the day when she will be forced to live the same fate.
