The Girl Without a Soul
Monique handles one of the toughest cases of her career: the sexual abuse of a five-year-old-girl at the hands of her father and his friend. The girl’s mother, a drug addict, provided no protection. As the mother talks casually about the incident Monique reflects back to her own abuse. Monique fought in courts against the parents, went head-to-head against a disinterested court system and social service agencies and eventually prevailed. Over the years she kept in touch with the foster family that eventually took the child in and helped them legally adopt her.
