deserves to be loved
Everyday in the UK children, some as young as eight, dress up
like teenagers and wander out on the street to sell themselves
Everyday a young child in the UK runs away from their
family home or children's home only to end up selling themselves
on the street.
Everyday children go out onto the streets and are
brought by everyday ordinary men for sex.
These children are both male and female. Some sell
themselves through choice. Others are forced to sell themselves.
Some don't even charge doing it for affection.
All of these children have one thing in common
although very few of them would ever admit it and some don't even
They all just want to be wanted.
And as sick as it may seem they know that they are
wanted by these men, even if it is just for sexual gratification.
So what has gone wrong for these children? Why do
they need to be wanted so bad that they are willing to let men

Because they might just end up one of them poor
children on the streets, or maybe they will grow up to be the
next generation of neglecters and it will be there children

And maybe, just maybe we can save some children from
following in the footsteps of those already selling themselves on
