but help, as we learn time and time again, can come from unexpected places. fox5's christine maddela introduces us to these angels on wheels. . i love you. that's teresa and
4:46 am
granddaughter. i'm excited to see what's to come for her, what her future holds. there are a lot of people trying to make sure her future is nothing like her past. if this 2nd grader had a normal childhood, we'd be able to tell you her name and show you her beautiful face. but she didn't, so we can't. she was totally afraid of everyone and everything. teresa's daughter lives with her boyfriend in couple couldn't pay the bills. then they had a baby girl. this baby girl. we just thought they're just struggling, what teresa didn't know at the time... they were using drugs four years ago teresa's daughter called her mom to ask for money to pay for the hotel room where she, her boyfriend, and their then three year old daughter were living. something just told me something was wrong. i just started driving and i just went to pick her up. i found them moving from hotel to hotel they were
4:47 am
figured out she couldn't talk. she had massive ear infections in both ears. speech therapists helped. she learned to talk, but with that new gift came new revelations. i don't undrestand how a father could molest his daughter. and how a grandfather could do it. and my daughter sat and watched. how? i don't get it. i can't get it, i'll never get it, and i'm not... makes me really sad to have a little girl tell you "why did they do that to me, why can't i be a happy family? why can't my mom and dad be normal? it's really hard. it's really hard to hear that and i don't really have any answers except i'm sorry. so whatever i need to do i'm going to do to help these kids. midgy helps. so does ogre. and nobody. and echo, and shadow, and hope. do not ever want to see a child have to live in fear and not be able to be a

we're not counselors, we're not role models, we're bikers. we just happen to care about abused kids they're bikers against child abuse, or baca. children we deal with have been abused emotionally, physically, sexually any kinds of abuse we want to make sure they don't have to go through that anymore those names? road names. it's for our protection as well as the children we empower. they all have road names as well to protect them. so this... is ponygirl. "hello!" the bikers don't know her real name, her whole story. they don't need to. all they know is she needs their help. first visit, level it's a little overwhelming when you see 40 motorcycles roll up you can hear them before you can see them. they round the corner, and ponygirl waves knowing all this... is for her. the reason why we're able to remove that fear is bc we are bikers. that's the reason it does work. a small child sees a bunch of big ugly tatted up people in leather, and lot of times they'll look at that and say whoever hurt me or whatever hurt me is not any tougher than these guys. my family is a lot bigger and badder than anybody else out there that's what gives them that empowerment, that's what takes away that fear. they're all volunteers. baca members go through extensive background checks and training. they "adopt" abuse victims into their big, bad, unbreakable biker band of brothers... and sisters. they're a family. maybe they can't sleep, they're afraid somebody that's
4:49 am
they need but call and we'll be there. we pay them a visit, we go to court with them so that whne they are in court and testifying against their perpetrator, they're looking at their family and they feel safe bc a lot of them take the stance that my family is tougher than yours. "who are we? baca? what do we do? empower the right. (clapping)" baca has brought light and lvoe back in her life. they gave her a "cut" a bear. i think i want to name him baca. (bear) you want to name him baca? baca bear. the way they do everytyhing is so symbolic, how they
4:50 am
each put their love in that teddy bear. unending love, so if they're ever scared they've got something to be nervous about, they've always got that bear to hold onto. here you go. (girl hugs) i love him strength. empowerment. she says it all the time. i will not live in fear. we pray for our brothers and sisters. they've given her that empowerment. to not be afraid. and to speak up for herself. and to tell the truth. "im so happy" it just absolutely does my heart good. it really does. it gives me a reason to ride, ya know? something to ride for. just, i love it. gives me purpose. baca's made a huge difference. they've brought joy back to her life. and she now knows she carries that
4:51 am
love even when she walks alone.
