There’s probably someone else to help you grow up. For Jim Heaney, it was the angels of Stony Island.After being molested by a neighbor, ten-year old Jimmy is abandoned by the people who should be protecting him.

His grades and behavior plummet, and he starts drinking. But there are still bright spots in his life in Chicago’s Stony Island neighborhood including baseball down by the railroad tracks, and his parish school. The priest and teachers at St. Ailbes can’t fix his family, but they still manage to give the desperate boy the help he needs to survive.Survival is not recovery however. The dark legacy of sexual abuse continues to haunt his adult life. He narrowly escapes prison, and although he quits drinking, unresolved anger threatens to destroy every good relationship in his life.Divine Child: Evil vs.

The Angels of Stony Island tells how young Jimmy built on compassion first experienced in Stony Island to climb from despair to recovery. He shares his story in the hope that it will give other survivors of child abuse the tools to make new life for themselves.
