One place the twins sought refuge was in the home of their neighbors, Shelly and Jim. "They were like second parents," Kathie says. "Going over to their house felt like heaven in a way."

Neither Shelly nor Jim had any idea the twins were being sexually abused. But, two weeks after the twins' 13th birthday, Kellie and Kathie say they were confronted by a suspicious relative, and they knew it was time to confide in Shelly and Jim.

Watch what happened the night their secret was exposed.   

After confessing their secret, the twins begged Shelly and Jim not to tell anyone until they had a chance to talk with their mother. After two agonizing days, Shelly called 911, and an hour later, Wichita police were knocking on Kellie and Kathie's door.
