When AmyLynn Harrington Smoot was 8 years old, growing up in Louisville, Ky., she had a secret much darker than anyone close to her could have imagined, especially her loving father and mother.

She made a friend at a playground nearby who eventually lured her to a house. At first she played dress up there, but soon she became a victim of sex trafficking at the hands of men who threatened her life if she ever dared to speak a word

“These individuals gutted a rabbit in front of me and my sister,” she said.

Thanks to years of Christian counseling and was part of an impactful rally.

AmyLynn was recently a guest on the radio show “Polk Today” that aired on several stations in Central Florida. Click the media player at the top or bottom of this page to listen to her talking with host Andrea Oliver about:
