My Life History An Encounter that Changed My Life

A key event in my life occurred 27 years ago at the age of twelve, September 19, 1994. I call it “my alive day.” My mother and I were returning from a 4H meeting and our car was hit by another car directly on the driver’s side, killing my mother and me instantly. But God saved my life and brought me back.

I was trafficked through Child Protective Services at 13, was sexually assaulted and enslaved for three and a half years, and escaped to freedom at 16 and a half years old.

At the age of 25, I needed to make a decision about the burden, pain, and agony I was carrying from the loss of my mom and other life events. The only person affected was me, and I was the only person who could do something about it. People are responsible for their own hearts, and I am responsible for my heart. I had to ask myself, “Do I want to walk around as a victim or do I want to overcome?“

God taught me to answer the question, “What do you want to do with your circumstances? Are you going to allow them to define you?” It was then that I realized I could move forward to the plan God had for my life. I am happy to say, that plan included my husband of almost 17 years.

Now it is time for me to give back to America for all it has given me. I am ready to serve the great people of this state and this nation.


Tara Rodas has been a public servant for more than 20 years, 17 of which have been dedicated to serving the Federal Inspector General (IG) community.

In 2021, Tara answered the humanitarian call from OPM to support the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) urgent efforts to care for and place migrant children entering the US via the southern border with sponsors in the US.

While serving on detail with HHS’ Unaccompanied Children (UC) Program, she discovered that children are being trafficked through a sophisticated network that begins with being recruited in home country, smuggled to the U.S. border, and ends when HHS delivers a child to a sponsor – some sponsors are criminals and traffickers and members of Transnational Criminal Organizations.

On April 26, 2023, she testified at the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Integrity, Security, and Enforcement hearing and said, “Whether intentional or not, it can be argued that the US Government has become the middleman in a large scale, multi-billion-dollar, child trafficking operation run by bad actors seeking to profit off the lives of children.”

Tara is now known as the HHS Whistleblower who exposed government-sponsored, taxpayer-funded child trafficking.
